Scenes from Fourth of July celebrations around the Fountain Valley, including the Security Volunteer Fire Department street breakfast and lots of privately-launched fireworks over Fountain in the Mesa Ridge/Cross Creek/Heritage area and across Security-Widefield with Pikes Peak in the background. Fountain rescinded its fireworks ban on July 2, just in time for the holiday weekend.

Hundreds of people attended the annual Fourth of July street breakfast fundraiser for the Security Volunteer Fire Department at Station No. 1 on Sunday. In the evening residents all over the Fountain Valley set off fireworks - some legal, some not. The ones pictured below were above a residential neighborhood in Widefield.

Fountain Police and Fire crews patrolled the city in search of illegal fireworks July 4, confiscating numerous items. Fountain rescinded its fireworks ban on July 2, just in time for the holiday weekend.

"Throughout the weekend FFD and FPD made hundreds of contacts with our citizens throughout the city," Police Chief Chris Heberer said. "After making legal fireworks legal based on the amount of rainfall and the future forecast for more moisture, we responded throughout the evening on the 4th to illegal fireworks across our city. We strongly encourage our citizens to both enjoy their holiday and our freedoms in a manner that respects all of our citizens and the safety of our community."
