4th of July Celebrations & Fireworks Guide - Updated for 2021

Events, Activities, and MORE to Help Plan Your Celebration

By Jessica Compton - Macaroni Kid Lakewood-Littleton Assistant June 9, 2021

The 4th of July is right around the corner, and there’s nothing that says celebration like fireworks! Whether your kids like to be up close and personal, and love the booms, or prefer to watch from afar, there is a local celebration or show to enjoy! We have gathered the best of the best, so you don't have to!

Celebrating at home this year? We can help you with that, too! Check out our Red, White and Blue Eats, patriotic crafts, and fun facts below!

Publisher's Note - I’ll let you in on a little secret... if you want to have a 360 degree view of all of the fireworks in the metro area, bring your lawn chairs and set up shop at Robert A. Easton Regional Park (12819 W. Coal Mine Ave., Littleton, CO 80127) by the baseball field. No noise, no crowds, and a spectacular view!
