We realize that the impending doom of fires in Colorado may be putting a damper on annual Fourth of July fireworks fiascos, but, never fear Denver, there are still some star-studded displays going on throughout the city this weekend within a stone’s throw of cold cocktails and dinner at the Rialto Cafe. Here are two ways to light up your holiday!
Independence Day Eve Celebration in Civic Center Park: On Tuesday night at 8pm, gather with the masses of Denver for an evening of visual and audio stimulation. The Colorado Symphony Orchestra will perform in front of the Denver City and County Building while an innovative light show plays along the exterior of the building behind the band shell with a fireworks finale. Take a quick ride down the mall afterwards for a drink and some dinner at Rialto! For more information click through on the photo.
Elitch Gardens Fireworks: What goes better with fireworks than rollercoasters? I beg to argue with anyone who refutes this pairing. Ride the rails and the waterslides by day and celebrate your freedom at dusk with a spectacular fireworks display on the evening of the fourth! Afterwards, follow your nose to Rialto for late night happy hour apps and drink specials. For more information, visit www.elitchgardens.com
