We are officially less than a month away from celebrating the United States' 246th Birthday. The City of Laramie is gearing up to celebrate the day with all the excitement and entertainment it deserves. Today, the City announced the return of its Fire in the Sky Fireworks show.

2022 Fire in the Sky Details

This year's event is in partnership with WyoTech and marks the 32nd return of pyrotechnic wizard Dave Akers. We're looking at 301 shells of bombastic fun lighting up Laramie's sky.

The show starts at 10:00 p.m. on July 4th. If inclimate weather occurs or other circumstances arise, the City will reschedule the show for July 5th.
