I can't believe it's already the time of year that screams parades and barbecues and red, white and blue themed desserts. And, of course, fireworks shows. Perhaps you're looking for an Independence Day activity that doesn't revolve solely around explosions in the sky, and if that's the case, consider heading south for a different kind of noise.

On the Fourth of July, which falls on a Monday this year, the Village of Los Lunas will host not just a traditional fireworks display but a Battle of the Bands competition as well. In the contest, five local bands will compete for cash prizes and will be judged on stage presence, skill level and crowd participation. The show will be held at Daniel Fernandez Memorial Park on the softball field and will start at 5pm. Daniel Fernandez Memorial Park, Los Lunas • Mon Jul 4 • 5pm • View on Alibi calendar
