Events for 2023 Fourth of July are still in the works.
The Pueblo West Fire Department and Chief Caserta want to remind everyone that the use of fireworks is strictly prohibited and anyone caught lighting fireworks can be fined, and in addition held liable for any damages caused by the use of fireworks.
We hope that everyone has a safe Fourth of July and practices fire safety throughout the summer.
Wet Parade History
Since the 1970s, the Pueblo West Metropolitan District has celebrated Independence Day with a splash. What began as typical hot July morning, as Fire Chief Jack Fowler sprayed a crowd of sweaty spectators with a fire hose along the parade route, has now turned into the largest wet parade and water fight west of the Mississippi.
