As of 2019, there will no longer be a 4th of July fireworks display in the town of Breckenridge.  Like others who live and work full time in Breckenridge, we applaud our town council for making the decision to no longer hold a 4th of July fireworks display. Our personal safety, forests, wildlife, homes and businesses are far too precious to place at risk as the consequence of a wildfire caused by fireworks. Fireworks of any kind are prohibited within town limits. Please help prevent wildfires and do not light your own fireworks anywhere in Summit County.
