Come celebrate this Fourth of July safely in Commerce City at one of the best and biggest fireworks shows around!
Commerce City’s free 4thFest, Saturday July 4, begins outside at the south end of Dick’s Sporting Goods Park (6000 Victory Way). Outdoor festivities kickoff at 5 p.m. with a ropes course, zip line, bungee trampoline, climbing wall, inflatables, karaoke and many other activities for all ages to enjoy. Enjoy modern country tunes from Ryan Chrys and the Rough Cuts on the main stage from 7:30-8:30 p.m., and again prior to the fireworks display around 10 p.m.
The Colorado Rapids take on the Vancouver Whitecaps FC at 7:30 p.m. (tickets at www.coloradorapids.com) while free festivities continue outside. Fireworks begin around 9:30 p.m. following the game.
Personal fireworks are illegal within city limits and the police department is increasing its patrol during the July 4 holiday, as well as giving high priority to complaints regarding personal fireworks. All personal fireworks, even small sparklers, are illegal to possess, use, or sell within city limits and fines for violating the ban start at $100.
