Light It Up

Looking for a place to view fireworks in honor of July 4, but don’t want to drop a paycheck for Colorado Rockies tickets? Check out the fourth annual Independence Eve celebration at Civic Center Park. The evening will offer a light show, fireworks, and a patriotic concert by the Colorado Symphony.

“The Colorado Symphony embodies the rousing, determined and independent spirit of our nation, and it is fitting that we join forces tonight with the City of Denver and Civic Center Conservancy to celebrate our nation’s birthday,” says Jerry Kern, Colorado Symphony CEO. “The historic Civic Center Park is a unique setting for an unforgettable patriotic experience, and we welcome the opportunity to provide musical fireworks — the perfect grand finale to an evening of festivities.”

The events will begin at 8 p.m. at Civic Center Park, Broadway and Colfax Avenue. Lawn seating is first come, first served, and early arrival is encouraged, as this popular event is always packed. Picnics and outside food are allowed, but there will also be concessions on site. For information, visit
Wed., July 3, 8-10 p.m., 2013
