The 4th of July is my personal favorite holiday! What’s better than enjoying a day in the sun filled with good friends, family, and barbecue. Of course let’s not forget the best part of this holiday- fireworks! If you’re looking for a fun way to enjoy the 4th in Austin, there are a variety of festivals and firework shows sure to keep you entertained!
H-E-B Austin Symphony 39th Annual July 4th Concert and Fireworks at Auditorium Shores: This is by far the largest fireworks display in the Austin area. It will be packed, but it’s a great place to watch gigantic fireworks with a picturesque downtown backdrop. Bring a blanket and a picnic, the show starts at 9:30 but I highly recommend arriving early! For more info visit the official site.
Independence Day Celebration at the Hill Country Galleria: If you haven’t been out to the Galleria in Bee Cave recently, you may want to check it out this 4th. The shopping center recently underwent a $16-million-dollar renovation, and to tell you the truth I can hardly tell the difference. The best place to watch the fireworks display is still where it has always been in the large grassy pavilion in the middle of the shopping center. They will have live music starting at 6:30 and the fireworks show starts at 9:15 pm. For more info visit the Galleria's site.
Lakeway’s 4th of July Celebration: The City of Lakeway continues it’s 4th of July tradition with a parade starting at 8:30 am. This year’s theme is "Patriotism On Parade". The parade begins at the Live Oak Golf Course and continues on Lakeway Drive to the Lakeway Activity Center. At 10:30 am, the Pageantry of the Flags program begins at the Lakeway Activity Center. The Lakeway swim center opens its doors at noon, allowing everyone to enjoy a chance to cool off during this hot holiday. For more info, click here.
Rollingwood’s 4th of July Parade, Picnic, and Fireworks: I loved participating in the City of Rollingwood’s 4th of July Parade as a kid. We would get an assortment of red, white and blue paraphernalia, cover our bikes in it, and get to be in the parade! Rollingwood continues its tradition again this year. The parade starts at 8:30 am. Decorated wagons and bikes meet at the intersection of Wallis and Rollingwood Drive while cars and floats start on Riley Rd. After the parade, come play at the Rollingwood Park where there will be face painting, games, a raffle and more. If you’ve still got more energy, you can watch the fireworks from the Zilker Clubhouse in the evening. For more info visit the City of Rollingwood's website here.
