Los Alamos County is hosting a Fourth of July Celebration at Overlook Park today but there will not be a fireworks display for the second consecutive year.
Los Alamos County also passed a resolution in June, outlawing the use of fireworks.
According to a press release from the Kiwanis Club, the decision was made in consultation with the Los Alamos Fire Department. They cited the dangerously dry conditions embracing Northern New Mexico.
All other activities, including Atomic City Transit to the park, will go on as planned. There will be music by the Nomads and Community Winds, a display by the Habanero Skydivers at both 50 and 8:15, food vendors, and “Ton O Fun” Bouncy Toys.
Festivities get underway at 2 p.m.
