Rifle fireworks display tonight

Listen to this post

RIFLE I Rifle will celebrate Independence Day over two days this year with a concert and fireworks display at Centennial Park tonight.

The concert begins at 8:15 p.m., followed by fireworks at dusk. Rifle special events manager Don Chaney said the fireworks were originally planned for Friday, July 4. Many years in the past have featured July 3 fireworks, so the city decided that the date would be better than no fireworks at all. According to city officials, Centennial Park is the best place for viewing.
