The Colorado Rockies will play in front of some of their biggest crowds later this week, thanks in part to the fireworks that will light up the area around 20th and Blake after the games are over.
In 2018, the Rockies have designated July 3 and 4 (against the San Francisco Giants) and September 28 (against the Washington Nationals) as “fireworks games.” Historically, any Rockies game featuring fireworks draws a sellout crowd and plenty of traffic after the fireworks have ended.
For some, these will be the only Rockies games they attend all season. The baseball game may indeed be secondary to the postgame fireworks. If this is you, don’t worry. We have you covered.
I wrote an article last season about the best strategies for viewing fireworks at Coors Field. You can click here to read it and get some ideas about what to expect when the game ends and the fireworks begin.

There will be plenty to see and do before the fireworks begin, so make sure you allow some time to get into downtown Denver. Make sure you’re there for not only the postgame fireworks but also any on-field fireworks caused by the bats of Nolan Arenado, DJ LeMahieu or Charlie Blackmon.
