4th of July Fireworks Near Houston in 2021 and More Holiday Events

After a summer without live fireworks, we're excited that so many of the 4th of July fireworks near Houston will officially return in 2021. Live music, 4th of July parades, and fireworks are all coming together to make this year's 4th of July in Houston spectacular.

There are several mega fireworks displays happening near Houston, including those at CityCentre, in Galveston, and beyond, but there are also more low-key 4th of July celebrations that might be better for the younger kids. Either way, it appears clear that Bayou City is ready to indulge in a little Independence Day celebrating in 2021. Read on for our top picks, and find more fun things to do this holiday weekend in our Summer Fun Guide for Houston Kids.

Note that events below may be subject to last-minute changes, so please double-check before heading out the door!
