Fireworks in Castle Rock
This year's fireworks display will happen on July 4, 2018.
It’s tradition to celebrate Independence Day with fireworks. As long as fire conditions cooperate, the Town of Castle Rock can help you celebrate right from your own backyard.
• Fireworks will blast off from the butte above Red Hawk Ridge Golf Course, at sundown (about 9:30 p.m.) Wednesday, July 4.
• Castle Rock Fire and Rescue will monitor fire conditions. If fireworks cannot be done safely, changes to the plan will be communicated on the Town’s social media sites.
• View the high-flying show from almost anywhere in Castle Rock.
• Red Hawk Ridge Golf Course will be open normal hours (6 a.m. - dark), but the Clubhouse Grill will stay open late. If you choose to take in the fireworks there, please do so from the parking lot of the Clubhouse Grill, or the driving range. Keep in mind, parking at the course is limited. The golf course asks visitors to please stay in the parking lot or driving range area and off the greens.

Personal fireworks can be fun, but they can also be dangerous. Keep children and animals away from fireworks to avoid injury. Never shoot fireworks near anything that can easily burn such as trees, homes, fences, and dry grass. Keep water or a fire extinguisher nearby in case of a small fire. In the instance of any fire or injury, dial 9-1-1. Our firefighters are always standing by to assist in any emergency.
