Fourth of July events kick off across Colorado this weekend

Stevie Crecelius for Visit Denver
Civic Center Conservancy's Independence Eve celebration.
Although the Fourth of July will be short of official fireworks shows -- and private use of fireworks has been completely banned in Colorado -- there will be ample opportunities to celebrate the country's birthday across the state over the next few days.

Here are just some of the events slated for this weekend and next week.

Montrose Patriotic Band's Annual Patriotic Concert at Montrose Pavillion (June 30, 7 p.m, free)
The town of Montrose is holding its annual concert -- but this year, for safety's sake, the music has moved inside Montrose Pavillion. So although you won't be able to picnic under the stars, you can still enjoy the Stars & Stripes. For more information, visit the official Montrose website.

Grand Junction 2nd Annual Hot Rods Event at Homeward Bound (June 30, 9 a.m., spectators are free)
A fundraiser for Grand Junction's homeless shelter, Homeward Bound, this hot rods show is open to any and all cars, and it's just $10 to enter your ride. Awards will be given to the classiest vehicles, and there's food and door prizes for spectators. To enter, email or call (970) 256-9424.
