Los Alamos Fire Chief Troy Hughes has given the go ahead for the annual 4th of July fireworks display sponsored by the Kiwanis Club at Overlook Park in White Rock. 

Kiwanis members worked with experts at Los Alamos National Laboratory to provide detailed technical analysis of the display coverage zone. This information, along with thorough review of the Overlook Park area and the detailed event response planning assembled by LAFD provided the necessary confidence that the Kiwanis Fireworks Show can be conducted with utmost safety. 

The entire 4th of July Celebration event was canceled two years ago due to the Las Conchas Fire. Last year, the fireworks display was canceled due to dry conditions just days before the event.

For this year’s event, the Kiwanis Club of Los Alamos has assembled a huge collection of bouncy toys, great music provided by Russ Gordon Concerts including a Battle of the Bands, an incredible skydiving display provided by the Habenaro Skydiving Club, delicious food and much more. Activities start at 2 p.m. Come for the afternoon and stay for the evening … you won’t want to miss the show.

Check back with the Los Alamos Daily Post for more details on traveling to the event and a schedule of activities.
