Four Mile Park Independence Day Celebration

Submitted by Corrie Sahling on Tue, 05/19/2015 - 5:08pm

In lieu of staking out on a sidewalk for hours to see a fireworks show, head to Four Mile Park where there's plenty of room for all at this Independence Day celebration. Kids can pan for gold, try their hand (or rather, foot) at stilts, and test their strength at tug-o-war. Historical demonstrations of blacksmiths and home cooks will also take place. Once fireworks are lighting up the sky, Denver Concert Band will playing patriotic tunes to cap off the evening. Thu 5-10 p.m.
