Fireworks and Other July 4th Events around Houston: Where to Watch in 2020

Summer of 2020 is definitely a time when people are wanting to celebrate some independence, which is no doubt why so many communities have decided that Texas reopening is a time for fireworks displays. Live music, parades, and fireworks are all coming together to make this Fourth of July spectacular. After weeks of being at home under quarantine orders, the Bayou City seems ready to indulge in a little socially distant Independence Day celebrating. 

If you plan to join in the 4th of July fun, please remember that the Texas DSHS recommends practicing social distancing, and the CDC recommends using face coverings in public to help slow the spread of COVID-19. If your family's choice is to stay at home, we'd love to suggest some fun ideas from our Stay-at-Home Guide.
