Hello Everyone: Need something to do in Colorado for the 4th of July... check out below.
4th of July Events:
It’s time again to celebrate and honor the independence of our nation and in Denver there’s no shortage of ways to celebrate. With all that’s going on it may be hard to decide where to go and what to do. If you’re having trouble deciding what to do, consider some of the following great Independence Day events. The Colorado Rapids 4th of July Celebration Perhaps the best fireworks and entertainment show on Independence Day will be held at Dicks Sporting Goods Park. This is the Rapids forth annual 4th of July Celebration and the festivities at this event will include live music, food and games. At the conclusion of the game their will be an unforgettable fireworks show, the biggest firework show in the state. The Rapids will be playing the Chicago Fire. Denver Outlaws vs. Boston Cannons 4th of July Celebration Another great 4th of July event to consider is the big game between Denver Outlaws vs. Boston Cannons taking place on July 4, 7:00p.m. at INVESCO Field at Mile High. Not only will you see an exciting lacrosse game, but right after the game there will be an in-stadium fireworks show! Special ticket package for the night is a ticket and a day pass to Elitch Gardens for only $29! Call 303-OUTLAWS or visit www.DenverOutlaws.com for more information. Old-Fashioned July 4 Celebration Four Mile Historic Park’s traditional festivities with music, games and more! The celebration takes place in Four Mile Historic Park on July 4, from 10 AM to 4 PM and the cost is $7.00 for adults, $4.00 for seniors and kids under 5 get in free.
The Colorado Symphony Orchestra is going to throwdown at 7pm on July 3rd in City Park with selections from Aaron Copland, Scott Jopllin, Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture and of course some Sousa marches. Then at 7:30pm on the 4th, the CSO will perform much of the same program at Fiddler’s Green Ampitheatre in Englewood with the addition of some music from John Williams and Leonard Bernstein. Finally, on Sunday the 5th, the peripatetic CSO will play at Red Rocks with a more classically oriented schedule. They will, however, still rock the closing with the rousing 1812 Overture/Stars and Stripes Forever combo. That’s good stuff.
Coors Field– Rockies vs. Diamondbacks, July 3-5. It doesn’t get more American than baseball, hot dogs, and fireworks. Even better, depending on where you get your seats, the hot dogs may wind up being the most expensive part.
The 19th annual Cherry Creek Arts Festival takes place July 3-5 (from 2nd to 3rd between Clayton and Steele). It showcases the visual, culinary and performing arts, is FREE, and will host 350,000 visitors over the three day event. It’s a treat to mix with international visual artists, sample fine cuisine, visit special exhibits and artist demonstrations. Also, please note there will be a specially designated diaper changing station with supplies located on Milwaukee Street. So stop cleaning junior’s bottom in the glass-blowing tent. No good can come of that.
Red Rocks– Wilco will play the venerable amphitheater on Friday, July 3rd, followed by Blues Traveler (plus Lewis Black) and fireworks on the 4th, and then the aforementioned CSO on Sunday the 5th. I don’t want to slight any of previous events, but you really can’t beat Red Rocks. For anything. Let alone the 4th of July.
