Fabulous Fourth

This year's event is billed as a "grand relaunch," which is reason aplenty to spend the holiday in Colorado Springs. For three decades, celebrants packed Memorial Park for day-long festivities that culminated with a symphonic concert, cannons and fireworks. Then the park went dark for four years - but it's back! The Colorado Springs Philharmonic will perform and fireworks will light the sky over Prospect Lake. csphilharmonic.org

 

Colorado Rockies vs. Los Angeles Dodgers

Sit back and enjoy the national pastime on our national birthday. Grab a hot dog and munch on peanuts and Cracker Jack. This likely will be a sellout so don't delay in buying your tickets. The game features a clash of National League West rivals, but don't hit the exits after the final out. Stick around for an impressive pyrotechnic display. coloradorockies.com

 

4th of July Celebrations Breckenridge Style

True to its name, the day begins at 7 a.m. with a 10K trail run and ends about 11 p.m. with fireworks against the backdrop of the Ten Mile Range. In between, you can sip coffee or mimosas (or both) at a Garden Party on the lawn of the Barney Ford House Museum, participate in a mountain bike race, take in a parade, listen to a reading of the Declaration of Independence or send the kids into a water fight. tinyurl.com/aetq5qh
