Celebrate the Fourth of July at Angel Fire Resort

June 20, 2024

It’s nearly July at Angel Fire Resort, which means Fourth of July celebrations, mountain activities, lots of sunshine, and fantastic events! Come celebrate your freedom where the average summer temperatures are in the 70s and where there are plenty of activities for the whole family to enjoy. Be sure to check out these family-friendly events happening at the resort.

Along with a live outdoor concert, lakeside party, pancake breakfast, parade, and several other events, the resort’s latest addition this year is northern New Mexico’s first-ever drone light show instead of traditional fireworks. Drone light shows are performed by illuminated, synchronized, and choreographed groups of drones that arrange themselves into various aerial formations.

In 2022, Moreno Valley was battling the Calf Canyon/Hermit’s Peak blaze, which burned over 340,000 acres, making it one of the largest wildfires in New Mexico’s history. The resort and the Village of Angel Fire is proud to provide a 4th of July drone show to provide a safer celebration display. The drone show is the perfect way to celebrate the Fourth in our dry climate.
