The Town of Castle Rock canceled its fireworks show as the area experienced dry and hot conditions, but residents still turned out to celebrate the Fourth of July. In The Meadows, a community festival took over Bison Park.
Scattered around the grounds were children's bikes adorned with red, white and blue. Long lines formed for hot dog and cotton candy stands. Inflatable games kept youngsters entertained while parents looked on.
Cary and Angie Biondolillo, of Castle Rock, said the event offered their family a fun alternative to fireworks, which were banned under stage 1 fire restrictions. The couple smiled and took photos as they loaded their daughter, Amelia, into a train for a ride across the baseball field.
Also among the crowds were Melissa Dern and her four children, each family member wearing red, white and blue costumes.
“We live next door,” Dern said as her children ran throughout the park, adding the event kept them all entertained. “Always looking for something fun to do on the Fourth of July.”
