Fireworks fly in face of fire fears

The sky over Cornerstone and Belleview parks at the border of Littleton and Englewood filled with fireworks on July 4, despite a wildfire season that saw many towns across the state cancel their Independence Day shows.

Smaller fireworks boomed above surrounding houses.

Little, it seemed, could contain residents' enthusiastic patriotism, or at the least their fervor for watching things blow up.

For some, though, the holiday was more a chance to chill in the park on a nice summer evening.

“Nobody knows about this spot in the park,” said Denver resident Hannah Peiffer as she gingerly cut into a homemade strawberry pie beneath tall cottonwoods, surrounded by companions eager for a slice.

As darkness fell, Peiffer and her companions watched the show from their undisclosed location, their bellies full, undisturbed by the throngs in nearby fields.
