Fireworks will blast off this year from the Santa Fe Quarry butte above Red Hawk Ridge Golf Course, starting at sundown, approximately 9:30 p.m. Because of the elevation of the butte – about 6,700 feet – and because this is a high-flying show, there will not be a designated park for show-goers to congregate. The fireworks are expected to be seen from most places in Castle Rock. However, visibility may be limited in Crystal Valley Ranch, Plum Creek, Founders, Castlewood Ranch and Sapphire Pointe so you might want to drive and park to get a front row seat!

At Red Hawk Ridge Golf Course, you can view the fireworks from the parking lot of the Clubhouse Grill, or the driving range. Just keep in mind, parking is limited
