Independence Day Fireworks 

When: Mon., July 4 2011
Price: Free

Promotional quotes in hand, let's play Guess the Festival! Ready? 1. "This year is sure to be a blast!" Ah, that clever quip comes from the good folks behind the Tri-Lakes area's free 4th of July Street Fair, which runs from 11 to 3 in downtown Monument, then resumes — with, you guessed it, fireworks — at dusk in Palmer Lake. 2. "Hear Abraham Lincoln recite the Gettysburg Address ... " Yes, all the 202-year-olds today are hanging out at Rock Ledge Ranch (3105 Gateway Road,, $4-$8), where between 10 and 5 its old-fashioned Fourth will offer games, food and historical re-enactments. 3. "Tailgating will be authorized." You're right — only the Air Force Academy could make fun sound so well-regulated. For its free event at Falcon Stadium, gates open at 4, with vendors and family fun (bouncy houses!) available immediately, then the Colorado Springs Philharmonic playing at 7, the AFA Band starting at 8, and fireworks at 9:30. — Kirk Woundy
