The US will put on over 16,000 fireworks displays this 4th of July, in celebration of its 241st birthday. Dark skies across the country will light up in aerial peonies, willows, crossettes, horsetails, and fire balls.
And the best of the best — with finales that seem to bring back daylight — might not be where you think they’d be.
10. Denver, Colorado
Where to find it: Civic Center Park
This celebration practically comes with its own festival. On July 3rd, you’ll find Civic Center Park packed with people, food trucks, bumpin’ stages, and a light show on the Denver City and County Building — before the fireworks even get going.
There’s so many displays going in and around Denver this weekend, you could catch this one and still have time to hit up half a dozen more. The light rail or the city’s B-Cycle program make navigating a breeze.
