COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — While Colorado Springs' annual 4th of July Symphony will not be held at Colorado Springs' Memorial Park this year, a new plan will have firework shows spread across El Paso County.

Firework displays are now planned to launch from 10 locations on the Fourth of July. 

“Instead of a limited crowd being the only group to enjoy the holiday, residents will be able to stay home, stay healthy and continue to enjoy fireworks being displayed at [10] locations throughout the Pikes Peak Region,” said Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers.

The event will continue the tradition of playing a patriotic concert, along with the fireworks, to be broadcast across the community as the night sky lights up.

Residents are encouraged to celebrate the Fourth of July “from their porch” and look to one of the ten locations displaying fireworks while tuning their radios to Sunny 106.3 FM, Y96.9 FM, KCME 88.7 FM, 92.9 Peak FM, or AM 740 KVOR to hear the concert broadcast.
