4th of July Happenings

Happy 4th of July! While this year’s mid-week holiday might put a damper on hopes for a long weekend out of Austin, there are still several ways to celebrate our Independence around town.

The highlight of this year’s festivities is of course Austin’s Annual Fireworks display presented by the Austin Symphony. After weather prevented us from enjoying them the past few years, it will be wonderful to see the Austin skyline lit up like, well, a firework! The show kicks off at Auditorium Shores beginning at 8:30pm so head to the park or find a perfect viewing spot! More details here.
