Even though Austin has canceled the annual fireworks show for only the second time in 40 years, and our celebrations will inevitably look different this year while practicing responsible social distancing… there is no reason to cancel celebrating all together. I’ve rounded up a few fireworks displays that are still be lighting up the night sky on Independence Day.
As of right now this info is current, but I recommend checking at the links I’ve included before you head out.
The usual parade and all day activities will have to wait until next year, but there will be two fireworks shows from 9:15-9:30 from the Buda Sportsplex and City Park on July 4th. Parking will not be allowed at these locations, so you’ll need to watch from home or find a safe location to watch from a distance.
Tune in to KTSW 89.9 to live stream music choreographed with the fireworks and watch from in or around your car at 9pm. “The City of Kyle encourages all viewers to do their part in keeping the community safe while celebrating Independence Day — masks on, tune in, look up.”
The show by American Fireworks, will be launched at Dripping Springs Sports and Recreation Park at 9:30 PM on the 4th. Spectators are encouraged to watch from nearby parking lots, as they will not be allowed into the park.
If you choose to stay home and celebrate, please do so safely and follow city restrictions regarding fireworks. There is a list on the city website of allowed items which are not considered “common fireworks.” For more 4th of July ideas click HERE.
From my family to yours, Happy Independence Day!
