So far, Alpine still suffers a drought...last rain being nearly 10 months ago. This causes the ground to be dry and the grass mostly dead, a great fuel for a fire. Therefore, the only fireworks in the plans this year will be in Fort Davis, Friday night. I suppose they think since the ground has already been burned once, the risk is low for another fire.
There will be a parade in Fort Davis on July 2nd, parade in Alpine on July 4th at 5:00pm with festival to follow, and Cowboys Baseball all weekend to enjoy. The Post in Marathon also usually puts on a great 4th of July celebration as well!!
Good chances of rain for the weekend so let's keep our fingers crossed!! Have a great 4th of July!!
