Frisco Cancel Fourth of July Fireworks
On Tuesday night the Frisco Town Council voted to cancel the Town’s 4th of July fireworks display due to continued drought conditions and the extreme fire danger. The much needed discussion regarding the fireworks mainly debated the safety of the Dillon reservoir location versus the support of the state wide fire ban. Sheriff Minor weighed in on the discussion providing recognition of the town’s safety record with concerns over liability. Advice from Lake Dillon Fire Department led the council to finalize a decision and cancel the 2012 fireworks.
“The continued dry conditions and recent wildfires have increased our need to take more precautions” stated Town Manager Bill Efting, adding “we feel that the Fourth of July activities make for a great day of family fun with or without fireworks.” In recognition of the economic impact the cancelled fireworks might have on the Town, the council instructed staff to research rescheduling the fireworks display for another time this year. The Frisco’s fabulous fourth of July is a small town event with lots of adventure for everyone. Wednesday the 4th, is packed with a pancake breakfast, a Kids Fishing Derby, Main Street parade, and live performances.
The Frisco fourth of July continues to be a full festival.
