fireworks-red-white-blue_tx700Here are the best places we've found where you'll be able to see professional fireworks displays on Independence Day (July 4th, 2013). The holiday falls on a Thursday this year and there should be plenty of fireworks to enjoy in Northern Colorado.

We'll update this with any more info as we get closer to The Fourth of July, but if you know of a fireworks display that is not listed, shoot me an email or post it in the comments below. (Last year, many of the shows were cancelled or postponed due to the fire danger, let's hope we don't have a repeat of that in 2013!)

However, Estes Park also lists the Old Glory Carnival on July 4th which says to "stay and watch the fireworks above Estes Park" at 9PM.
