Northglenn will not hold firework show this week after technical problems cancel July 4th show

The City of Northglenn said its fireworks show will not be rescheduled this week due to rain the forecast and staffing issues.

NORTHGLENN, Colo. — A patriotic Independence Day firework display in Northglenn was cut short Monday night.

The firework show at E.B. Rains Jr. Memorial Park ended after less than one minute due to technical issues.

The City of Northglenn said the technical difficulties were likely due to rain getting something wet that wasn't supposed to be. A fireworks company began an investigation Tuesday to determine the cause of the problem.

The City of Northglenn said it will not reschedule the firework show for this week due to rain in the forecast and difficultly getting the necessary staff on short notice. Northglenn officials also said a mid-week show would be difficult for many families to attend.

Northglenn officials added that the firework vendor is honoring the city's investment and will reschedule the show at a later date.

Several attendees expressed frustration to 9NEWS that information regarding the show's cancelation and technical difficulties was not posted on Northglenn's social media pages.

The City of Northglenn said speakers throughout E.B. Rains Jr. Memorial Park announced that the firework show had been canceled.

Hey Northglenn, we want to send our apologies about the fireworks failure last night. We know it was a serious bummer....
