Despite fireworks shows being cancelled all over Colorado, Independence Eve at Civic Center Park in Denver still had the green light for their concert and fireworks show.
The Angel Light Pyrotechnics team has been rigging the City and County building with fireworks for the past three days.
"We are feeling really good about the show this year. We have 1200 fireworks on this building right now. We came out to celebrate 236 years of our Country's freedom this year," says Larry Darrington, Owner of Angel Light Pyrotechnics.
Darrington says he knows fireworks and fires are top of mind for many Coloradoans right now but safety, not only for their crew but everyone around them, is always number one priority.
"If it's not safe, it's not worth doing. That's the way we look at it. Common sense says a lot actually... some shows are close to open fields and those you have to really evaluate carefully. I totally agree with al lot of the cancellations," Darrington said.
All professional pyrotechnics companies have to be cleared through their local fire marshal before the show is deemed 100 percent safe.
"We work with the fire department. We don't work against them; they aren't trying to put out our fires and vice versa, and that's what keeps it safe and keeps it a great show," Darrington said.
