Celebrate the 4th of July in Breckenridge. Whether you are a runner, biker, shopper, 4 years old or 50, you’ll stay busy this Independence Day.

Beginning at 9:30 a.m., watch as over 800 mountain bikers kick off the 4th of July Parade in the 50-mile Firecracker 50 Mountain Bike Race. Over 70 floats will flood Main Street, for the official 10 a.m. parade start with the Red, White and Blue Color Guard. This is only the beginning of the activity-filled holiday, and it wouldn’t be complete without the reading of the Declaration of Independence in the Blue River Plaza.

Don’t miss the amazing fireworks display with the Tenmile Range as your backdrop. Wondering where the best viewing is? Head over to the Blue River Plaza and take a front row seat. The fireworks, weather permitting, will emerge from the South Gondola Lot.
