4th of July Weekend Happenings

Happy 4th of July! Hope you’re preparing to enjoy a wonderful and safe long weekend celebrating ‘merica’s birthday. Here are a few recommendations of specials and events happening around town to help get your Red, White & Blue on!

Top pick for the 4th is, of course, the Austin Symphony’s 37th Annual July 4th Concert and Fireworks Show sponsored by HEB. Pack a picnic, load up the family and head to Auditorium Shores to enjoy an outdoor concert by the Austin Symphony Orchestra beginning at 8:30pm followed by a firework display at 9:30pm. With 100,000 folks expected, I highly recommend showing up early to ensure primo seating. Full details can be found here.

Happy 4th of July!
