4th of July fireworks in Colorado Springs are awesome because of all the military presence in the area. Firework shows started on Saturday, with random ones going off all through the night and more on Sunday night. Unfortunately for my friends and I, we missed the show at the Fort Carson Military Base on Sunday…who would have though that they would start earlier than the time posted..? We managed to get to the Air Force Academy’s show at the Falcon stadium on time though, andthat was a beautiful show to see. It was a great night to have a picnicc while enjoying great company and good music. The fireworks show started off with a 21-gun-salute, and then went on for half-an-hour accompanied by music.
