Press Release

Cancellation of public fireworks display

Salida, CO – On June 14, 2018, the Salida City Council approved Ordinance Number 10 Series 2018 banning fireworks and outdoor flames. This ban is in effect until conditions improve. With fire danger being “very high” and multiple new fires around the state, the Fire Chief and the City agree that the Independence Day Fireworks Display shall be postponed to a later date when it can be done safely. If anyone is caught lighting fireworks within the City or the County, they will be cited.
