No fireworks display this Fourth of July in Cañon City

By  | 

CAÑON CITY, Colo. (The Gazette) - Cañon City won't have a fireworks display this Fourth of July, following a series of cancellations or postponements in years past due to fire bans or high fire danger.

"The city had to make the decision whether or not to budget for 2019 fireworks in September 2018," says a post on Cañon City's Facebook page. "Due to past years' cancellations and the drought our area and state has been under, the city did not budget for fireworks this year."

The show typically is held off Skyline Drive.
