Sterne Park — 5900 S. Spotswood Avenue, Littleton

The Western Welcome Week annual fireworks show in Sterne Park has been discontinued. Not only did the fireworks in 2019 double in cost (unforeseen and therefore not budgeted), but the type of fireworks had to be modified due to the aging vegetation in Sterne Park. These changes were unpopular, and many fireworks fans made their dissatisfaction known. The type of fireworks display now allowed in Sterne Park is very expensive. WWW’s primary funding sources — donations, sponsorships, and event fees — are not enough to cover the increased cost. Unfortunately, it is not up to Western Welcome Week to determine the size and type of fireworks that are allowed in the park, the board listens to the pyrotechnician (fireworks) experts, and they abide by the fire code.
Western Welcome Week, Inc. is a stand-alone 501(c)3 non-profit public charity. To make a donation or become a sponsor, visit www.westernwelcomeweek.org/support.
2019 Fireworks Show – “Outdoor Close Proximity” fireworks display set to music will begin at approximately at 9pm. Western Welcome Week provides a professional fireworks display; every precaution is taken to provide a safe show for the spectators and the surrounding neighborhood. If the weather becomes a hazard to the attendees the event will be cancelled and efforts will be made to reschedule.

Close proximate products are used with the utmost confidence in many venues, including residential parks, rooftops, stadiums, theaters, etc.
