Independence Day, better known today as the 4th of July, is a celebration of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. The Declaration of Independence was drafted in June of 1776 and was adopted by the Continental Congress July 4, 1776. The Declaration was the official step taken to declare independence from Great Britain. Thirteen colonies became sovereign states and would no longer be under British rule. Today the 4th of July has become one of the most celebrated holidays in America, it is a celebration of freedom and American pride.

The 4th of July will be a little different this year without the fire bans of previous years but it is important to remember it’s been very dry lately. Although there is no fire ban the restrictions on fireworks will be different in every county so make sure you check your county’s restrictions before lighting up. To be on the safe side just pack up the family and head to one of Colorado’s many firework spectaculars. The festivities began last night at Civic Center Park but there will be plenty more. Below are some of the events taking place today.
