Two Colorado Mountain Towns Cancel Fireworks on Fourth of July
Fireworks are a staple of the Fourth of July holiday and hands down my favorite holiday all year. Two Colorado mountain towns have opted to no longer have fireworks displays on the Fourth of July.
The Town of Breckenridge announced that they will move away from fireworks back in January. This week, the only other town that would put on a firework display in Summit County, Frisco, has announced that they will no longer do fireworks as well. Frisco Mayor Gary Wilkinson said the "Council has decided that it was time to start new traditions" in a statement. Traffic, parking, crowd management, and increased summer fire dangers were all factors in canceling the Fourth of July fireworks show in Frisco.
