WRBM ramps up Fourth of July events

RANGELY I The Western Rio Blanco Metropolitan Recreation and Park District (WRBM) ramped up its Fourth of July offerings for the second year running, coming away with definite winners and plans to change timing details in the future.

Fireworks…

A variety of colors and shapes explode simultaneously as part of the Fourth of July fireworks display set off from Cemetery Hill above Meeker.

Meeker and Rangely both have spectacular fireworks displays but because of extreme hot and dry weather conditions and current fires burning in the state, both fire chiefs wisely announced this year’s Fourth of July displays would be cancelled.

Big sparks for a small town show

­MEEKER I People might think they have to head to the big city for a decent fireworks display, but Meeker residents and Range Call attendees know better.   Thanks to a dedicated team of volunteers and community support, Meeker’s annual Fourth of July fireworks display gets better every year.
