Holiday fetes set in Littleton, South Jeffco

For two days this weekend, South Jeffco and Littleton will celebrate our country’s independence with music, food and prodigious pyrotechnics.

Foothills Park and Recreation’s Red, White & You kicks off the Fourth of July weekend at 5 p.m. Friday. The festival is staying true to what attendees have enjoyed in the past, said Regina Smith, arts director for Foothills.

“We’re really sticking with the same formula that has been working well, since we keep hearing how much everyone from the community loves it,” Smith said.
