Residents across Liberty County are gearing up for that grandest of all patriotic American holidays, with the 4th of July weekend on the horizon. This will be the first time in a couple of years that local patriots will have the chance to get out and enjoy large celebratory gatherings following the crisis that was COVID19.
There will be a celebration at the Liberty Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5621, hosted by the Auxiliary, for the entire family to enjoy activities throughout the day. Kids will have the opportunity to compete in cooking, cupcake decorating, and coloring contests. There will be plenty of games, finger foods, and a bounce house, as well as a flag backdrop for family photos.
The City of Liberty will be lighting up the sky on Saturday night, July 3, around 9:30 pm. The annual Independence Day fireworks show at the Liberty Municipal Park is located at 501 R.E. Vinson St.
Like last year there are no planned activities throughout the day. Still, onlookers will have the opportunity to take in the always impressive fireworks with plenty of parking space throughout the spacious park.
For those looking to celebrate in the Hull-Daisetta area on Sunday, July 4, there will be some fun for the entire family at the Hull-Daisetta Fireworks Show set for 8:30 pm. Bobcat Stadium will be open for seating during the event at 117 Main St in Daisetta.
Another prominent local event of the weekend will come on Sunday from folks in Cleveland, at their annual display with plenty of seating at Cleveland Indians Stadium, located at 1600 E. Houston; the show is scheduled to begin at dusk.
As a reminder, most banks and government offices will be closed Monday, July 5, as part of the extended Independence Day holiday weekend.
