Due to extreme fire danger, the City of Rifle has decided to cancel the annual July 3rd fireworks show. Conditions in the area have not improved since May 31st when Garfield County implemented Stage 1 fire restrictions. Those restrictions are applicable to the City of Rifle through Rifle Municipal Code 10-10-40(e). City Council made the decision at its last meeting.
There are still plenty of free activities for all ages scheduled for the 3rd.
Come early and enjoy the afternoon visiting Rifle businesses, restaurants, and the park prior to the show. Centennial Park is a beautiful venue with a great playground. The Centennial Park water spray pad will operate for extended hours that night until 8:30 pm.
Symphony in the Valley will present a patriotic concert beginning at 7:00 p.m. at the Centennial Park Amphitheater. There is limited seating, so you are encouraged to bring a lawn chair.
The symphony’s ensemble, “Noodle Soup” will be playing outside of the UTE Theater at 8:30.
The Long Run, “Colorado’s Tribute to the Eagles” will be at the UTE beginning at 9:00. The show is General Admission Standing Room Only - FREE for first 400 guests through the door.
