In case you missed out on 4th of July fireworks, Douglas County will launch a high-flying fireworks show that celebrates Colorado Day (our state’s 144th birthday) on Saturday, August 1 following the conclusion of the PRCA Rodeo at the Douglas County Fair & Rodeo. The show will blast off at approximately 8:30 p.m. from the top of Santa Fe Quarry west of I-25 above Red Hawk Ridge Golf Course in Castle Rock.
The fireworks will be visible throughout the Interstate 25 corridor, including from within Downtown Castle Rock. If you’re local to Castle Rock, officials recommend watching from your own neighborhood if you can.
