Due to the extremely dry, hot and windy conditions across the State, the Parker Town Council made the decision today to cancel the fireworks portion of the Town’s Let Freedom Sing 4th of July event.
“There are fires burning across Colorado and the safety of our citizens is our top priority,” said Mayor David Casiano. “We value this community, our citizens and their homes and have concluded that continuing with our fireworks show is simply not worth the risk.”
In addition, the Parker Police Department will be taking a zero-tolerance approach to violations of the fire ban currently in place. For more information on this policy and the associated fines, please visit www.parkerpolice.org.
Although the professional fireworks show has been canceled, the rest of the "Let Freedom Sing" event will go on as planned on Wednesday, July 4 at Salisbury Park, 11920 Motsenbocker Rd., from 6 to 10 p.m. Bring your blankets and lawn chairs and set up for an evening of family entertainment.
"Let Freedom Sing" activities will include:
- Kids’ Zone, brought to you by Celebrity Lanes
- Bounce houses
- a bubble tower
- balloon twisting and
- wacky world inflatables
- Face painting and temporary tattoos will be also available for a small fee.
The older kids and adults who are young at heart can try the big slide, the climbing wall or the obstacle course that will be set up.
Food vendors will also be on hand so you can eat and enjoy the music from several local groups. Under the Radar plays at 6 p.m., Rocky Mountain Brassworks 35-piece brass band from at 7 p.m. and Buckstein’s country favorites from 8 to 9:30 p.m.
Limited parking and handicap accessible parking will be available at Salisbury Park for $5, cash only but the event itself is free. No alcohol, tents, grills or canopies will be permitted. Event-goers are welcome to bring coolers and picnic items.
