Independence Eve Fireworks Presented by Anadarko at Civic Center Park
Each year, Denver’s Civic Center Conservancy produces a free patriotic celebration on Independence Day Eve. This year’s event, presented by Anadarko, will take place Sunday, July 3 at 8 pm and feature a live concert synchronized to the booms of brilliant fireworks overhead. Look forward to hearing contemporary jams from world-touring rock/blues/funk fusion band Chris Daniels and the Kings in addition to traditional favorites from the Buckley Air Force Base’s 101st Army Band.
Make sure that you get to Colfax and Broadway early to stake out a prime viewing spot on the Civic Center lawn. Blankets, beach-style chairs, and picnicking essentials are all welcome.
