Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

While there were problems at July 4 fireworks shows in Windsor and Grand Lake, the Independence Day Eve spectacle Wednesday at Civic Center Park was major-problem-free, allowing a huge throng to enjoy rockets' red glare and a beautiful night in Colorado. Photographer Kenneth Hamblin was there, and he came back with some wonderful portraits of Denverites from eight months to eighty gathered to watch the skies. Check them out below, and click to see the complete Independence Day Eve in Civic Center slide show. Continue for more of our Independence Eve at Civic Center Park gallery.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
