Here’s the rundown of firework shows in Eagle County celebrating Independence Day.


Vail America Days is a family favorite with activities stretching from Golden Peak to Lionshead Village on Tuesday. Each year, crowds enjoy an exciting parade featuring entertainment, candy and a whole lot of American pride. After enjoying the America the Beautiful parade from 10 a.m. to noon, head over to the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater for a free Bravo! Vail: Dallas Symphony Orchestra concert. Finish off your day with fireworks at dusk from Golden Peak.


Slifer Smith & Frampton presents the 31st annual Salute to the USA, which takes place Monday in Nottingham Park. Bring your own blanket and take part in family friendly activities such as face painters, magicians, balloon sculptors and more. Treats and beverages will be available for purchase, then relax and get ready for one of the most amazing fireworks displays the state of Colorado has to offer — 10,000 shells explode in a pyrotechnic extravaganza of dazzling color and sound.
