[ARCHIVED] Fourth of July Celebrates our Heroes

Celebrate our Heroes

There are just a few days left to enter the “Celebrating our Heroes” Virtual Electric Light Parade. Hosted by the City of Las Cruces Parks and Recreation Department, the Fourth of July virtual event is a tribute to all those who have kept the community going through this pandemic. Las Crucens can show their appreciation by submitting photo entries aligned with the theme and be entered to win in one of several categories. The deadline to submit entries is 11:59 p.m., Monday, June 29. Find more details at www.las-cruces.org/FourthofJuly.

Create a “Celebrating our Heroes” entry by decorating a yard or vehicle, dressing in patriotic style, showing a pet’s patriotic spirit, or designing a patriotic face covering. Take a photo of the tribute and submit it by email to enter the virtual parade competition. This is not a photo contest; entries will be judged on the representation of the theme, creativity, and quality of workmanship. Lights are optional and are not a part of the judging criteria.

All entries will be showcased in a virtual parade event on CLC-TV and social media. Prizes will be awarded to First, Second, and Third place winners in each category, and first place winners will also receive lawn signs to display. All winners will be announced on the Fourth of July during the virtual parade.

For complete information about the Virtual “Celebrating our Heroes” Electric Light Parade, go to las-cruces.org/FourthofJuly, or contact the Parks and Recreation Department at 575/541-2550 or email clcengage@las-cruces.org.
