There are numerous ways to celebrate the Fourth of July this year in the Hill Country, and the American Automobile Association (AAA) suggests Texans plan accordingly because nearly six million Texans are expected to travel over the week of Independence Day.  The Independence Day holiday travel forecast is over nine days from June 29 to July 7, according to AAA.  AAA estimates that 70.9 million travelers will head 50 miles or more from home over this period.

The City of Kerrville is presenting the “Fourth on the River” celebration, billed as the “largest fireworks show in the Texas Hill Country.”  The celebration includes a concert and vendors, with fireworks expected to begin at 9:30 p.m.

The “Texas 4th of July Parade” in Fredericksburg begins at 10 a.m. on July 4, beginning on Main Street.  Between noon and 5 p.m. will be a “Fourth of July, Luckenbach Texas-style” event that will include free live music, a kids’ art contest and dance lessons.  The City fireworks show at Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park starts at 9:30 p.m. with viewing areas inside the park and the Gillespie Fair Grounds.  Attendees are reminded to bring their own lawn chairs and refreshments.

The annual Boerne Independence Day Fireworks Show begins at 9:15 p.m. on July 4 at Boerne City Park.  There will be a food truck at the park and participants are encouraged to bring their own lawn chair or blanket and are asked to not bring any tents.

AAA said the top reported trip destinations for the Fourth of July holiday in Texas include Galveston, Corpus Christi, state parks, the San Antonio River Walk, Fredericksburg and the Hill Country.
