Kiowa and Simla Fire Protection Districts‏

The Kiowa Fire District and the Kiowa Volunteer Fire Department regret to announce
that we must cancel this year’s annual “Lights in the Sky” fireworks show and chili cookoff
scheduled for June 29, 2013 at the Elbert County Fairgrounds. This was a very
difficult decision to make but after consulting with the Elbert County emergency
services community we believe it is the right one.
In light of recent statewide incidents the public safety must be our highest priority and
is first and foremost in the decision to cancel. We have no doubt that this will impact
our partners, however, due to our current dry and windy weather conditions, recent red
flag warnings and a continued forecast for more of the same this is the only decision we
could make.
While there are currently no plans to reschedule the fireworks, our partners will be
continuing with their events. That information is below and we encourage everyone to
come out for a fun filled day.
If there are any questions contact Chief Lamansky at (303) 621-2233 or at
