The City of Salida Fire Department will be at ArtWalk this Saturday, June 25, 2016 from 5:30 – 8:00 p.m. accepting donations to support the Independence Day fireworks display.  The Salida Fire Department will not be driving through neighborhoods to collect donations as has been done in the past.

The City of Salida Fire Department has scheduled a full fireworks display on Independence Day, Monday, July 4, 2016.  Safety is a priority for all involved, and in accordance, Spiral Drive on Tenderfoot Mountain will be closed to ALL traffic—vehicle, bike, walking, etc.—starting Saturday evening, July 2 through Tuesday, July 5. Please be aware that biking trails crossing Spiral Drive on Tenderfoot will be closed as well to ensure the safety of all involved.

The fireworks will commence at full dark on Monday, which is approximately 9:30 p.m.

Salida Fire would like to stress that fireworks can be very upsetting for pets, especially dogs. Please be sure to secure your pets during the fireworks show.  It is not recommended that you bring your pet with you to see the fireworks show.

Salida Fire thanks all in advance for their consideration and patience with closures, and support of Independence Day fireworks.
