Aren't fireworks on the Fourth of July a little
cliched? Trick question! Anyone who said yes is either un-American (and probably a terrorist) or has never seen the Estes Park Independence Day Celebration
. "The setting can't be beat. To see the fireworks in this expansive sky with sound reverberating off the huge peaks it's amazing!" says Suzy Blackhurst of the Estes Park Convention and Visitors Bureau.
The celebration blasts off today with a 7 a.m. pancake breakfast and continues through a full roster of activities including the Colorado Arabian Horse Competition at Stanley Park, the Coolest Car show in Bond Park, and a patriotic concert by the Estes Park Village Band at the Performance Park Amphitheater. Fireworks go off over Lake Estes. Visit http://estesparkcvb.com/calendar.cfm.
