Wondering what your best view will be of the fireworks in Fort Collins this year? We’ve pulled together a list of our favorite spots.

1. City Park

Thu Jul 04 2019 at 9:35 pm

City Park, 1500 W. Mulberry St.

Get there early, because City Park gets crowded for the annual fireworks show. Watchers are encouraged to bring their own blankets or chairs to spread out and watch the show. The Fort Collins Symphony will also be playing shortly before the fireworks begin.


2. Stars & Stripes Open at City Park Nine

If you’re looking to do something a little less conventional on the 4th this year, head over to City Park at 7:30 am to register for the Stars & Stripes Open. Registration costs $50, plus green fees and cart fees, with a barbecue to follow.
