Lone Tree’s fireworks display is set for 8:30 p.m. Sept. 1 at Sweetwater Park. The evening will begin at 6:30 p.m. with music from an as-yet-unnamed band. 

Unlike the Independence Day celebration, limited to Lone Tree and Acres Green residents, the end-of-summer party is open to the public.

Dry conditions prompted the city to cancel the display on July 4.

The city held its fireworks display on Labor Day weekend 2012 as well, when arid statewide conditions forced it and most other Colorado communities to suspend their traditional plans.
