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:

Kerrville

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 villes4thontheriver.org.

Brenham

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.
