We might be coming to visit (yippie!!) and are wondering if Windsor has enough fun activities for the 4th of July for my kiddos, or if we should plan to head into Fort Collins instead (we're staying in Windsor). Thoughts?

I would hit various cities during the day. (Greeley, Ft Collins, Loveland)

You might consider Estes Park as well, they used to have activities + a great FW display over the lake. Very EZ to see and get outif over east where 36 crosses the Lake (then you take the loop below the dam 'Santa's Village'? / 'go-cart track' over to 34 to escape the traffic and get back to Windsor)

I often would go to a mtn or Carter lake (mom had a 'ridge home' there) and watch FW of several cites (with binoculars). Not a good 'kid' activity

As mentioned elsewhere you definitely want to go here Folk Art: Swetsville Zoo, Fort Collins, Colorado
my kids loved that stuff. You might also try to find an old fashioned home-made Ice Cream social and parade in a smaller town nearby. That is a likely happening. Small towns (~500 people) can be fun w/o the crowd for the 4th.

Fort Collins will have fireworks over City Park, just west of Old Town. During the day you can walk around Old Town and maybe have lunch on a patio somewhere, and I believe that there will be festivities during the day at City Park as well. Windsor is a great all-american town that will have fireworks over Windsor lake in the middle of town. There will be a band and festivities down at the lake during the day there as well. It won't be as crowded, but the firework show won't be as big as the one in Fort Collins. Estes Park is nice too, and they will also have fireworks over the lake. However, it will be pretty crowded on the 4th. Have a good time and enjoy NoCo!
