The 2022 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular, presented by Enterprise Bank & Trust and produced by Los Alamos County Community Services Department and Sancre Productions, will feature New Mexico’s #1 Country Star and fan favorite Chevel Shepherd at White Rock’s Overlook Park.
The event is 4-9 p.m. Monday, July 4th and will be packed with music, vendors, food and activities. However, due to recent wildfires and supply chain issues, this 4th of July Spectacular will not include fireworks.
“Enterprise Bank & Trust is proud to present the 4th of July Spectacular this year,” said Liddie Martinez, Enterprise President of the Los Alamos Region & Director of Community Engagement. “We are honored to have such an incredible artist join our celebration. As a true community partner, Enterprise is proud to support the talented native artists of our beautiful state.” For more information about Enterprise Bank, visit www.enterprisebank.com .
In its 2019 Los Alamos Summer Concert Series Lineup, Sancre Productions brought Chevel Shepherd to Ashley Pond Park and she drew, what is still, the biggest concert audience in the history of Los Alamos County.
“We are so happy to have Chevel back to Los Alamos for this July 4th event, and while we may not be able to have the fireworks this year, she is sure to put on a spectacular show in their place,” Sancre Productions spokeswoman Monica Griego said.
Shepherd is the 2018 Season 15 winner of The Voice and hails from Farmington. She never ceases to put on a great show and takes care of her fans by signing autographs and taking pictures after her performances, Griego said. To find out more about Shepherd, visit chevelshepherd.com.
