Freedom Over Texas Lights Up The City For Independence Day And In Celebration Of The 175th Anniversary Of Texas

Mayor Annise Parker Invites Texans to Houston’s Official Fourth of July Celebration Featuring Live Music, Family Activities and a Stunning Fireworks Extravaganza

Fireworks will ignite the sky, and country tunes will set the stage for an extraordinary patriotic celebration at Mayor Annise Parker's official Fourth of July event, Freedom Over Texas. Country music artists Jack Ingram, Chris Young and Rodney Atkins will perform at the annual event held from 4 to 10 p.m. on Monday, July 4, culminating with a spectacular fireworks show that will light up the downtown skyline. Admission to the event is FREE with the donation of one canned food item per person for the Houston Food Bank. In conjunction with the Fourth of July festivities, the State of Texas celebrates its 175th anniversary this year.

"I believe it is important and our civic duty as Americans to stop and celebrate the birth of our nation and pay tribute to the men and women who have made great sacrifices so that we may live in freedom," said Mayor Annise D. Parker. "I invite Texans to join us for this annual celebration so we may demonstrate the importance of honoring our country, respecting the values of our founding fathers, and instilling pride in our community."

The 25-year-old tradition and lively outdoor festival will feature star-spangled performances on the Freedom Stage by country music stars Jack Ingram, Chris Young and Rodney Atkins.
