The City of Durango and Durango Fire Protection District will conduct a fireworks test on Tuesday, March 8 from 6 to 7 p.m. The test will involve “close proximity” fireworks which are designed to burn completely without fallout. The city is considering the fireworks as an option to replace traditional aerial fireworks used for the city’s Fourth of July show, which has been cancelled four of the last five years due to drought conditions. 

Close proximity fireworks are often used at major sports venues and events where there is less space between the audience and fireworks effects. The fireworks are being used by several towns in Colorado.

The fireworks test will occur in four locations between downtown Durango and the North Main Avenue area. Firefighters will be on site. Residents may see short burst of light between 6 and 7 p.m. You do not need to report these. For more information, call (970) 375-7325.
