Laramie Gives Up On Delayed July 4th Fireworks

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Laramie has given up on rescheduling last year’s Fourth of July fireworks.

The display was postponed in July because of extreme fire danger and dry conditions. A wildfire had started days before near Lake Owen.

The city had planned to hold the fireworks display later in the year, perhaps around Christmas or New Year’s. But the Associated Press reported Thursday that didn’t happen because dry conditions persisted into December. Then, after snow began to fall, officials were concerned about whether firework technicians would be able to travel to Wyoming.

Assistant City Manager Dave Derragon said most of the $16,000 set aside for the display will be used for this year’s Fourth of July fireworks — unless high fire danger cancels that display too.
