ESTES PARK, Colo. (KDVR) — In an effort to protect public health and safety, Estes Park and Arvada have canceled their annual July 4 fireworks displays for 2020.
“This decision was made with a heavy heart, as we are constantly seeking ways to lift the spirits of our residents and support our businesses. However, we cannot risk the health and safety of our residents, businesses and guests by drawing such a large concentration of people to an event in town over that weekend,” Town Administrator Travis Machalek said.
Although this event has been canceled, the community has put safety precautions in place throughout Estes Park to prepare for the gradual return of visitors.
