4th of July parade

Events for This Weekend and the 4th of July Week in Breckenridge and Summit County

Kids waving American Flag in a 4th of July ParadeWith so many wildfires happening all over Colorado and such dry conditions our thoughts have been with all of the people displaced and suffering due to the fires. We have been very lucky here in Breckenridge and Summit County so far and have no active fires right now. We did get a little rain this week but remain under a level 2 fire ban across Summit County. A level 2 fire ban means that there can be no open flames, fireworks or even smoking outside. We’ll let you know when this ban is lifted.

Let’s all do a rain dance and keep Colorado Springs and the other fire affected regions in Colorado and the west in our thoughts and prayers!

Even with the fire ban Breckenridge and Summit County are moving forward with planned events this weekend and through the 4th of July week. Of course all public fireworks displays in Summit County have been canceled but there are plenty of other fun events this weekend and next week. Here is a partial rundown.
