Check out some great family-friendly 4th of July options in and around Boulder this year! For families with really young kids, or those who just don’t want to be out late, check out Parenting Place’s Kids’ July 4th Bike Parade OR head over the Boulder Rez for some daytime fun. The evening events are all fun, but remember you can see a lot of them from outside of the crowd if you want a more mellow experience for your family. Whatever you decide to do–enjoy!
