Ah, Fourth of July. Independence Day. The celebration of freedom and the American way. We declared independence from Great Britain on July 4, 1776, and have been partying on 7/4 ever since. It’s all about great American traditions like freedom, family, fireworks, cook outs, parades, concerts, baseball games, and all sorts of fun in the sun. Though the City of Austin won’t be able to have its annual fireworks show due to the drought and burn ban, we hear that the Austin Symphony concert will still go on as planned, and still be a good family-friendly destination.
Even though fireworks will be a no-no, there’s still plenty of other stuff going on in the Central Texas area to celebrate the holiday weekend. That includes an Independence Day festival, the Texas Freedom Festival, a special performance by a Robert Earl Keen at Whitewater on the Horseshoe, Fire Fest, the family fun day at Reunion Ranch, a big celebration in Luckenbach, a Barge Bash on Lake Travis, and plenty of other fun stuff.

We imagine many of you out there will be enjoying a backyard BBQ or two, and like always we in advise you to have a safe and happy holiday, and always think ahead and designate a driver if you are going to be indulging in adult beverages.
We’re always on the lookout for more events, and would love to know what you’re going to be up to, so please don’t hesitate to give us a shout and let us know if there’s anything we’re missing, or anything cool going on for July 4th that you think we should know about. We are all ears!
