Dillon Considers Fireworks display

by Summit Daily


July Fourth, Frisco, Colorado
Todd Powell

The door isn’t completely closed on a fireworks show in the county on the Fourth of July.

Following the cancellations of fireworks displays in Frisco and Breckenridge — citing public safety concerns about both wildfires and large-scale issues surrounding traffic and crowds — the town of Dillon is considering stepping in to fill the void.

The subject was brought up at the Dillon Town Council workshop on Tuesday evening, as officials discussed several topics related to safety, crowding, funding, the community’s desires and potential impacts on other towns like Frisco.

No decision was made at the meeting, and the town is expected to revisit the topic in an upcoming council workshop on April 16.

“It’s a big question, and a big topic and it’s worth some discussion,” said Councilman Mark Nickel. “I think we have to keep an open mind, look at the environment and the span of the county, and if we feel we can accommodate all of these people around the lake.”
