City of Fort Collins Fourth of July fireworks display canceled

The City of Fort Collins has canceled the Fourth of July fireworks display. After careful consideration and discussions with the Poudre Fire Authority, staff and Council, City Manager Darin Atteberry has decided to cancel the fireworks display scheduled for the evening of July 4th at City Park.

Atteberry made the decision official today: “The City wanted to avoid prematurely canceling this long standing community tradition, but with the extreme nature of fires currently burning across our state in addition to a 10-day forecast with no expected reprieve, we believe this to be the most prudent course of action.”
