Personal Fireworks

Only fireworks purchased at stands in Castle Rock are legal, and only on July 4. Remember, fireworks that leave the ground, explode, or break off into pieces are not allowed. If you bring in fireworks from outside Colorado, they are mostly likely illegal and subject to seizure, summons or fines. Castle Rock Fire and Rescue and Castle Rock Police also wants to remind you it is unlawful for anyone under 16 to purchase fireworks. If you choose to use fireworks on July 4, please remember to keep them away from dry grass, homes and anything flammable.

If a fire ban is in place, personal fireworks will not be allowed. For updated information, check out the current fire bans. For additional information including the sale of fireworks, check out the Town of Castle Rock municipal code.

Fireworks Safety

Personal fireworks can be fun, but they can also be dangerous. Be sure to keep children and animals away from fireworks to avoid injury. Never shoot fireworks near anything that can easily burn such as trees, homes, fences and dry grass. And, keep water or a fire extinguisher nearby in case of a small fire. After using fireworks, place the spent fireworks into a bucket of water, outside the garage, for at least 24 hours before putting them into your trash.
