Resort Cancels Fireworks in Acknowledgement of Recent Wild Fires
MESCALERO, N.M. (June 25, 2012) – Inn of the Mountain Gods Resort & Casino presents a free day of family fun during the Star Spangled Celebration, Sunday, July 1 from 2 p.m. until midnight. Celebrate Independence Day with a free day of activities and entertainment along the shores of Lake Mescalero including Beach Boys tribute band “Good Vibrations,” an outdoor barbecue, and great gaming promotions at the Inn and Casino Apache. In recognition of recent wildfires in the area, all fireworks displays have been cancelled.
“Out of respect for all of the work our local firefighters have done to protect the community and surrounding areas, we have determined that it is in the best interest of all parties to cancel this year’s fireworks display,” said Frizzell Frizzell Jr., CEO of Inn of the Mountain Gods. “The Inn of the Mountain Gods is sensitive to the fact that people were evacuated, and some have lost their homes. Despite this cancellation, we still invite locals and visitors to the area to celebrate Independence Day with some good old-fashioned family fun along the shores of beautiful Lake Mescalero. We look forward to seeing many members of the community come together to relax after weathering the difficulties of the past few weeks.”
