This year, the Fourth of July celebrations return to an in-person event filled with six hours of celebration, tradition and live concert stages along the Allen Parkway.
“After a two-year hiatus, I am pleased to announce that we will be returning for an in-person event on July 4,” Turner said. “Honestly, there are no restrictions in terms of people. It’s about coming and enjoying and having a wonderful time.”
Each year, Freedom Over Texas partners with the Houston Food Bank to donate a percentage of food and beverage sales to meet exceptional demand in our local community.
Freedom Over Texas will also celebrate the 60th anniversary of NASA Johnson Space Center this year with an exclusive Space City Experience showcasing its rich history and upcoming Artemis missions to the moon and beyond.
Tickets are $10 per person. Children under 5 years are free.
