When: July 4, 7pm (game time)
What To Bring: A super sweet lax lanyard
Denver’s Major League Lacrosse team, the Outlaws, host a game versus the timely-named Atlanta Blaze on Independence Day. But things really, ahem, heat up when the fireworks pop off after the showdown. And, for the record: We’re just calling it Mile High Stadium until some company figures out how to waste its money sponsoring a sign. (And, in our hearts, even after that.)
When: July 4, 7:30pm
What To Bring: Your children and an ability to recognize an all-instrumental version of “God Bless America”
The Colorado Symphony plays the expansive, grass-lined venue in the southern ‘burbs backed by a massive fireworks display. The event plays up its “family-friendly” nature, so feel free to have the youngsters in tow. So, you know, if you’re in the market for a super-boozy 4th, maybe pick another spot from this list (of which there are many). Tickets run $22 - $37.
