The Los Alamos July 4 Celebration Firework Show apparently is on for now, according to a press release from the Kiwanis Club.
Officials with Kiwanis said that Los Alamos Fire Chief Troy Hughes has given the go-ahead for the fireworks display. The Kiwanis Club members worked with experts from LANL 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 Firework Show can be conducted with utmost safety.
The celebration was canceled two years ago due to the Las Conchas fire. Last year, the fireworks display was canceled just days before the event due to drought and weather conditions.
