Fair and Rodeo’s fireworks show gets green light

Town of Castle Rock and Douglas County recently lifted fire bans

Douglas County has confirmed a fireworks show scheduled during the Douglas County Fair & Rodeo will move forward after both the county and Town of Castle Rock lifted fire bans thanks to bouts of rainy weather in recent days.

The show will take place from atop The Rock in Castle Rock at 9:15 p.m. on Aug. 4 and should be visible throughout town.

That’s good news for attendees of rising country music star Cody Johnson’s concert. Johnson’s show will immediately follow the fireworks, beginning at 9:30 p.m. in the outdoor arena at the Douglas County fairgrounds, 500 Fairgrounds Road, Castle Rock.

County and fair officials anticipate high attendance during the fair’s Saturday night activities and are asking people take advantage of offsite parking options and free shuttles to the fairgrounds.

Shuttle pick-up locations are at the Wilcox Building, 301 Wilcox St., and the Tri County Health Department, 410 S. Wilcox St. Offsite parking is available at both shuttle pickup locations, along Perry Street south of Plum Creek Parkway, at DC Oakes High School and onsite at the fairgrounds. All options are free.

The Castle Rock Fire and Rescue department is also reminding the public that civilian use of drones, formally called unmanned aerial vehicles, is prohibited during the fireworks show and at nighttime.
