ALAMOSA— Even though there will not be an Alamosa Fireworks show this year, there is still plenty on the agenda for Alamosans looking to get out and celebrate America declaring their Independence.
On Saturday, July 2nd, the Young Professionals of Alamosa (YPA) will host Block Party for America (BPA) located on Festival Street, the 400 block of San Juan Ave between Woody’s Q Shack and San Luis Valley Brewing Company. The inaugural event will offer local adult beverages, showcase local musical acts on the main stage, have yard games like cornhole, giant jenga, fire-breathing performers and a locally-owned foam pit. The event is slated to run from 6-10 PM.
Then on Independence Day, July 4, the 48th annual Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast will get things started for the celebration of America as they do every year with pancakes, sausage, eggs, coffee and orange juice in the San Luis Valley Federal Bank Parking Lot at 401 Edison in Alamosa. The breakfast runs from 7 – 10 am. Prices are $10 for adults, $5 for children (5-12 yrs old) and children under 4 eat free. Be sure to contact a Kiwanis member for tickets as ticket holders get express service.
Immediately following the breakfast, at 10 am, the annual Independence Day Parade will commence. Also held by the YPA, the parade will march down Main Street in Alamosa.
Be safe and have fun on the holiday weekend!
