Grand Junction Announces 4th Of July Fireworks At Suplizio Are Cancelled

Local News


The “Safer At Home” phase of re-openings in Colorado, has not saved this year’s 4th of July Fireworks at Suplizio Field. Tuesday the city announced it was cancelling the celebration, in-part, because of the lack of snow pack, and the timeline for planning the event was too uncertain. The city said in a release on Tuesday:

“In the interest of public health, the City has made the decision to cancel the fireworks show. Although the community is in the Safer at Home phase of re-opening, staff would need to make preparations now for the show. The uncertain nature of the pandemic does not guarantee that restrictions would be lifted by the date. Other contributing factors, such as high fire danger due to low snow pack also contributed to this decision.”

Unfortunately, for those looking for a day at the pool, the release didn’t end there. The City also announced it would not be opening it’s Lincoln Park Moyer Pool as it usually does on during Memorial Day Weekend:

“In addition to the fireworks display, the City is delaying the opening of the Lincoln Park outdoor pool. The Orchard Mesa Pool will remain closed after closing on March 14 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Lincoln Park outdoor pool normally opens on Memorial Day. This year, given the health crisis and the current Safer at Home order in Mesa County, the pool will not open during the holiday weekend. The City is working closely with Mesa County Public Health to evaluate our ability to open the Lincoln Park pool this summer given concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic.”
