Ralphie’s Indepdence Day Blast has been an annual tradition since 1941. Locals flock to the University of Colorado’s football stadium, Folsom Field, to take part in stadium-wide sing-along, listen to live music, see Ralphie — the real buffalo that is CU’s mascot — and, of course, watch the live fireworks show. The gates open at 8:00pm, entertainment begins at 8:30pm, and the fireworks start at dark, usually around 9:40pm.
