County Firework Bans

With the Fourth of July just around the corner, there has been some confusion about when and where it is legal to light fireworks.

El Paso County doesn't allow fireworks of any kind in the unincorporated areas. The City of Colorado Springs is also banning fireworks of any kind within the city limits.

Pueblo County is banning fireworks west of I-25 south of Pueblo and south of the Arkansas River, which includes the towns of Colorado City, Beulah, and Rye. The remaining parts of the county as well as the City of Pueblo still allow legal fireworks.
