Beginning at about 9:30 pm, the sky over Longmont will explode with the brilliance of hundreds of fireworks. Fireworks take place at the Boulder County Fairgrounds located at 9595 Nelson Road. For the best view, park at a nearby shopping center and walk to the fenced area in front of the arena or watch from anywhere within one mile of the fairgrounds. Handicap-accessible parking is available at the fairground’s south Nelson Road entrance with a handicap parking permit. Please leave pets at home and keep them inside, as fireworks can be very stressful for them.
The Longmont Skyline Kiwanis club has once again contributed a 5-figure check to the City of Longmont for the annual fireworks display. Special thanks to this great service organization for their generous support that makes this annual event possible.
