GJ Fourth of July fireworks called off

The skies above Grand Junction will be quiet the night of July 4 after the city of Grand Junction decided today call off its annual firework display.

High fire danger combined with the threat of the Pine Ridge fire raging near De Beque are cited as reasons to cancel the fireworks, Grand Junction Mayor Bill Pitts said in a press release.

Grand Junction’s decision is the latest in a string of canceled Fourth of July firework displays across the Western Slope. 

The city’s fireworks vendor, Fireworks West International, will work with the city to reschedule the fireworks display at a later date as the threat of fire danger subsides, the city said.
