Q: Why is there no longer a firework show at Memorial Park?

A: In the past, there was a firework show at Memorial Park. This placed significant strain on city resources like the police department, fire department, and traffic engineering due to the large gathering, considering the existing demands on 4th of July. The new “watch from your porch” format enables residents across the city to enjoy fireworks conveniently from their neighborhoods and Colorado open spaces.

Q: If a firework location is closed for on-site viewing, where can I watch the show?  

A: Colorado Springs’s open spaces are the perfect place to view the various fireworks shows throughout the city that are unavailable for on-site viewing.

Q: Is the Philharmonic concert free of charge?

A: Yes, tickets are free on a first come, first served basis. Seats are general admission.

Q: Is the Kona Ice sweet treat free of charge?

A: Thanks to our wonderful partner, Kona Ice, the sweet treats found at the specific locations are free of charge. Happy Independence Day!

Q: What happens if there is inclement weather?

A: As we prepare for the Star Spangled Symphony and Fourth of July fireworks, we want to keep you informed about our inclement weather policy.

In the event of lightning storms or severe weather, we will delay the event for up to one hour. If the weather does not improve within this period, we will unfortunately have to cancel the event without rescheduling.
