Fireworks to blast off for New Year's Eve in Castle Rock
Fireworks are not typically a part of New Year’s Eve celebration in Castle Rock. However, fire restrictions prevented the traditional fireworks show this past July 4, which allows the Town to close out the year with a bang on New Year’s Eve.
Fireworks will blast off from Santa Fe Quarry Mesa, located just south of The Meadows, above Red Hawk Ridge Golf Course, from 7 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 31. The show can be seen from almost anywhere in Town, though, visibility may be limited in some areas east of Interstate 25.
The New Year’s Eve fireworks show is weather and fire restriction dependent.
About the fireworks show
The show is expected to start at about 7 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 31, and lasts about 15 minutes. In the event of a weather event, the fireworks show will be cancelled, with no make-up date.

The fireworks will be visible throughout the Interstate 25 corridor, including from within Downtown Castle Rock – and from most all of the Town’s popular breweries.
