Due to the resent wildfire in Rock Creek Area and in recognition of the current weather conditions on the White Mountain Reservation, Sunrise Park Resort is cancelling their annual fireworks display over Sunrise Lake on July 4th 2013.
High winds, dry brush and low humidity have continued to pose a danger to the forest and wildlife area.
Although the July 4th event has been cancelled, the Annual Sunrise 3D Shoot-Out on Friday July 5th, Saturday July 6th, and Sunday July 7th, is still on. Lift rides will be available to all event participants as well as the general public.
The Sunrise Shootout is the Premier 3D Archery Shoot in the West; with over 12 3D courses set. The event features an extreme course, kids course, and a smoker round. Every registered shooter is also eligible for a Trophy Elk Hunt on the White Mountain Apache Reservation.
Smoking will be prohibited on the Sunrise Ski Area during the event and will be restricted to personal vehicles in the Sunrise Parking Lot.
