CLOVIS (KSMX)- During a special City of Clovis commission meeting, commissioners voted to move forward with the Smoke on the Water event, an annual Fourth of July event for community members.
The city will partner with Curry County and Rooney Moon Broadcasting to bring an abbreviated version of the event to the high plains on July 4th at 9 pm. The event will be held, per usual, at Greene Acres park at the corner of Main and 21st Street. However, unlike years past, there will not be live music, food vendors, or other games and activities. This year’s Smoke on the Water will be a massive, $20,000 fireworks display to help High Plains residents celebrate Independence Day.
Because of public health mandates passed down from state officials, onlookers are encouraged to watch from their homes if they are able to do so. If unable, residents are encouraged to watch from their vehicles. Officials are asking residents to avoid congregating the park proper.
More information will be released over the next week on the Rooney Moon Broadcasting group of radio stations.
