Communities plan Fourth of July events

Several surrounding towns will be celebrating Independence Day, Thursday, July 4, with family-friendly activities, food, fun, and fireworks. If you haven’t made plans yet for the Fourth of July, consider choosing from one of the events below:


Take the family out to July on the River to be held in downtown Kerrville at 10 a.m.

Special guest Robert Earl Keen and others will be on hand, along with the largest fireworks display in the Hill Country at 9 p.m. Admission is free.

Call 830-792-3535 or visit www.kerr


Washington-on-the-Brazos State Historic Site invites all to enjoy a full day of fun activities, from noon to 8 p.m., capped off by a fireworks extravaganza choreographed to patriotic tunes at 9:15 p.m. The site is located off S.H. 105, on F.M. 1155, approximately one hour northwest of Houston.

Attendees can take in the site’s three main attractions, Independence Hall, Barrington Living History Farm, and the Star of the Republic Museum. Children will love the special Toy Time exhibit at the museum.

Festival food vendors will be on hand all day, with special free activities beginning in the evening and a free special concert by “Tubie and the Touchtones.” Take a radio, blanket, and lawn chairs. Admission is free, but some tour fees apply.

For more information, call Ginger Moreland at 979-830-1824 or visit

Customers can make donations to Operation Purple at participating TA and Petro locations.

The Floresville City Pool will be open and free to the public all day on July 4. The pool is located in River Park on S.H. 97 W. in Floresville.


The city of Kirby, H-E-B, and Kirby Parks and Recreation will sponsor a day of fun in Friendship Park to include a Classic Car Show and Shine, games, food, and more. The park is located at 5745 Binz-Engleman Road in Kirby.
