Not to be a party-pooper, but here is a little reminder that recreational fireworks are illegal in Colorado Springs and some outlying areas. That includes all fireworks with a fuse or that require a flame to ignite. Novelty items like snappers and poppers are allowed. For more information visit https://coloradosprings.gov/fireworks.
In addition, El Paso County restricts both unlawful fireworks and well as permissible fireworks in the incorporated cities to include Colorado Springs, Monument, Fountain, and Manitou Springs, as well as all United States Forest Service Lands. Check here for more info.
