Friends, we are psyched for the upcoming July 4 weekend (technically June 30 through July 4) in Sierra County, for a few reasons.
Lake Levels are UP in 2017!
Lake levels are higher, at both Caballo & Elephant Butte, than we’ve seen them in years, which will make for maximum watery fun and heat beating, whether you own or rent a boat, lounge on a blowup raft or other floating device,* or access the water from your campsite on the shore.
Extra Special Events In Store:
The Dam Site Historic District will host its Second Annual Beer & Wine Festival on Saturday July 1 from 11am-9pm. This event will bring live music and vendors to the Dam Site Recreation Area, overlooking Elephant Butte Dam, for a full day of celebrating.
Music wraps up in time for The Big Fireworks Show, one of the biggest in the state, reflected on the water at Elephant Butte.
The first band to take the Dam Site stage, playing from 11am-4pm, is Merican Slang, an Albuquerque Band that’s 100% funky. Check’em out:
Merican Slang will be followed by local faves Tudy Romero and the Silver Bullet Band playing from 4-9pm.
Bring the whole family — and sunscreen of course — for a full day of fun!
* Speaking of floating, for cooling off there’s always the float the Rio Grande option. The river connects our two lakes and trips down can be taken on your own, or arranged through White Water Weekends or Zia Kayak Outfitters.
