27th Annual 4th of July Celebration
Free outdoor festival featuring family entertainment–Backstage at the Circus with Wise Fool NM & Lightning Foundation Hoop Dancers–a lineup of some of New Mexico’s favorite bands–Doug Figgs Trio, Power Drive, Al Hurricane Jr. Band, Suavecito–water slide and jump balloons, BBQ and food for sale, and NM Tech’s Famous Fireworks Display at Dark.
Celebrate the Fourth in Socorro: Entertainment, Food, Fun – And No Crowds!
Tired of the crowds, the search for parking, and high concession prices? Wouldn’t you like to listen and dance to New Mexico’s favorite music – for free?
Here’s a sizzling tip: Ditch the Big City for the small town of Socorro and enjoy Independence Day as it was meant to be celebrated – with music, entertainment, food, fun, and fireworks in a friendly community setting. A parade opens the day, starting at 10 a.m. at the Historic Plaza, going down California, up Bullock, and ending at the music venue, Macey Center.
New Mexico Tech and City of Socorro have just the ticket: a 27th annual Fourth of July celebration on the grassy grounds of the campus north of Macey Center that’s free to all – and so is parking.
