Frisco’s Fabulous 4th of July celebrations return to Frisco 2022 in a smaller, community oriented format first introduced in 2021. The 4th of July celebrations in 2022 will feature some traditional Frisco July 4th festivities, with some fun, new changes. In addition to the “Bikes and Barks” human and dog powered parade, this year’s festivities will include the return of a pancake breakfast to benefit Team Summit, free kids’ Fishing Derby, and live music at the Historic Park Gazebo featuring the Saucy Bees.
Participants are invited to decorate their bicycles, skateboards, and scooters and dress up their dogs for the Town of Frisco’s 4th of July non-motorized parade. Initially created to complement the last year’s walkable Main Street Promenade, this parade offers a way for community members, horses, dogs, walkers, scouts, … anybody without motor assistance to celebrate their independence by being part of the parade. This year Frisco will also host a high school marching band from Minnesota. Starting at 1:00pm, the parade will go from Madison to 7th Avenue. For the best viewing, people can grab a spot at one of Frisco’s great local business patios or parklets, or stand along Frisco Main Street. Motorized vehicles of any kind, including motorcycles, are prohibited in this human and dog powered parade.
Frisco Fireworks over Dillon Reservoir
While the Town of Frisco intended to host fireworks in order to honor community support for bringing back this tradition, on Tuesday, April 19, the Frisco July 4th fireworks display was canceled because the Town of Frisco’s special event permit application was denied by the Dillon Reservoir Recreation Committee (DRReC). The committee includes representatives of the Summit County, the Summit County Sheriff’s Office, Denver Water, the US Forest Service (abstained from voting), and the Towns of Dillon and Frisco. The permit was denied by a majority of the committee because of concerns regarding the impacts on traffic, watershed, and wildlife; ongoing major road construction in Summit County and on I70; anticipated fire danger; and a lack of consensus among the Towns and Summit County Government.
