‘We hope residents will join us in celebrating our country’

Parks & Recreation Fourth of July fireworks show returns

4th Of July Flyer 2021

VICTORIA, Texas – This year, the City of Victoria Parks & Recreation will host its annual Fourth of July celebration at the Victoria Community Center grounds. It will feature a free live concert and a firework show synced to music.

“We’re excited to bring this event back because we know how important it is to our community,” said Kimberly Zygmant, assistant director of Parks & Recreation. “We hope residents will join us in celebrating our country and remembering those who fought for our freedom.”

Bag of Donuts, a New Orleans-based cover band, will perform at 6:15 p.m. According to their website, the band plays popular music from different eras, using a combination of flamboyant style and audience participation.

Beginning at 9:30 p.m. is the Miller Lite Blastoff fireworks show. To listen to music synced to the fireworks show, residents can download the Sky Wonder Pyrotechnics app, and it will be broadcast over the community center loudspeakers.

Food and drinks will be available for residents to purchase, and ice chests are not allowed.

Honor 361, a nonprofit working to build a monument to honor local service members who died in Iraq and Afghanistan, will benefit from this year’s proceeds from beer sales.

Glazer’s Beer & Beverage, Miller Lite and 93.3 The Wold are sponsoring the event.

Parks & Recreation is looking for food vendors for the event. For those interested in applying, call Parks & Recreation at 361-485-3200 by the June 21 deadline. Considering space is limited, vendors are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
