Caliente’s 4th of July


Every year Caliente hosts a Fourth of July celebration, and the Caliente Volunteer Fire Department, Beautification Committee, Homecoming Committee, City Utility Workers, 4H clubs and volunteers all pitch a lending hand to make Lincoln County’s only incorporated city memorable for all who visit and desire to enjoy a small-town celebration. Always a highlight at Caliente’s Fourth of July is the parade and fireman’s grudge match between Caliente and Pioche firefighting volunteers.


We encourage your business, family or organization to enter a float. The parade will start at 11:00 with Lineup at 10:30AM by Thomas Petroleum. Any information needed, please call:
