There are fireworks restrictions for the Town of Parker that I found on their website as follows:
Be Responsible with Fireworks!
Summer is moving in and the temperatures are heating up! With Colorado weather conditions creating especially dry patterns, the Town would like to remind residents about the hazards of fireworks and the precautions they should take when using them.
“Safe and sane” fireworks are permissible only on private property within Parker Town limits. All other fireworks are illegal, and are prohibited in Parker, including on private property. “Safe and sane” fireworks include fountains, wheels, spinners, illuminating torches, dipped sticks, sparklers, snakes and glow worms.
Additional safety tips are located on their website here.
