As a step to ensure the community’s safety during very dry weather conditions , Castle Rock Fire and Rescue has canceled the Town’s Fourth of July fireworks show .
Fire dangers continue to increase , so officials decided to proactively call off the show . The community has been under Stage 1 fire restrictions since April 21 . Conditions are not expected to improve before July 4 and will potentially worsen .
While under the current Stage 1 fire restrictions , the sale of legal fireworks is permitted . However , the use of private fireworks is not . It is only legal to discharge private fireworks on the Fourth of July if there are no fire restrictions . As of now , under Stage 1 fire restrictions , it is not legal to discharge private fireworks within Town . In the unlikely event conditions improve , and Stage 1 restrictions are lifted , it would be legal to discharge fireworks only on July 4 . That said , conditions are likely to shift the other way , toward Stage 2 restrictions .
If the Town moves to Stage 2 restrictions , the sale and use of fireworks would be prohibited . Additionally , all professional fireworks displays – public and private – would not be allowed . Learn more about fireworks in Town at
