Steamboat is planning on having a fireworks show on the 4th of July. Here’s Steamboat Springs City Manager Gary Suiter.

The city will keep an eye on fire conditions and check the soil on Howelsen Hill to make sure the fireworks show would be safe. Steamboat hasn’t had fireworks on the 4th since 2016, so there is a stockpile of fireworks that needs to be used.
