ALAMOSA — Labor Day may officially mark the end of the summer season, but September will be busier than ever for Alamosa.
Events begin this weekend with the 33rd Annual Early Iron Festival. About 500 cars will roll into Alamosa this Friday and remain through Sunday when rodders will enjoy a poker run around Alamosa. The public is invited to view the vehicles, which range from classics to street rods, all day Saturday in Alamosa’s Cole Park. Rounding out that day will be the Early Iron slow cruise down Main Street at 8:30 p.m.
Before the show in Cole Park, the Alamosa Senior Center will host a breakfast at the center on the north end of the park.

Immediately following Early Iron, Alamosa will shoot up its postponed July 4th fireworks at 8:30 p.m. on Labor Day, Monday, September 2, at the Alamosa rodeo grounds. The free fireworks show is courtesy of San Luis Valley Federal Bank, which has generously provided this display for years. Because of dry conditions in July, the fireworks show was postponed.
In addition to celebrating Independence Day, the show this year celebrates Alamosa County’s 100th anniversary and pays special tribute to San Luis Valley firefighters. The grandstands will open at 7 p.m. on Monday.
