ROCK SPRINGS, WYOMING (July 4, 2020) — The skies will light up over both Rock Springs and Green River tonight with 4th of July fireworks displays. The weather folks will be cooperating with clear skies and light winds in the forecast for Saturday night.
The City of Rock Springs Parks and Recreation Department will be celebrating America’s birthday at the Wataha Recreation Complex beginning at 7 p.m. The event will feature games and music with the fireworks display to follow around 10 p.m. Social distancing measures will be encouraged.
