Leave the fireworks to the professionals during summer celebrations

Post Date:06/11/2019 5:12 PM

For your upcoming Fourth of July festivities or any other summer events, please remember that fireworks are illegal in Commerce City. Individuals are not allowed to possess, make, use, or sell fireworks – even small sparklers – within city limits or in city parks. Substantial fines and even jail time are possible consequences for violators of the fireworks ban. Last summer, city council increased the city’s fines to $500 for a first offense and $750 for a second.

To report the use of fireworks in your neighborhood, call the non-emergency dispatch line at 303-288-1535. Fireworks complaints will have a high priority in the period around July 4. Do not call 911 to report fireworks violations, since this could slow down response times for life-threatening emergencies.

Commerce City is once again teaming up with the Colorado Rapids to host one of Colorado’s largest professional fireworks displays at the annual 4th Fest, which is held annually on July 4 at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. The event starts at 5 p.m., with the fireworks display starting after the Rapids game. Purchase game tickets at coloradorapids.com.
