Local Fun In Austin For Independence Day!

Happy birthday America and Happy Independence Day everyone! If you are a procrastinator who waited till today to figure out the best local places to hangout, see fireworks, or more then this is for you!

First thing first, the firework show!

A place of tradition for fireworks is at the Vic Mathias Shores where HEB Austin Symphony will be hosting their July of 4th Concert & Fireworks event. You can share this experience with more than 100,000 other people celebrating America!

This is the 41st Annual concert and firework show that is planned, produced, and performed by the Austin Symphony. The show starts at 8:30 tonight and you won’t want to miss this!

A beautiful place to look at fireworks over the water is at South First Bridge. The fireworks will light up over Congress Avenue bridge in downtown Austin.

Just remember you will have to stand the entire time. Also, don’t forget about the bats. (#KeepAustinWeird)

Get to the sports field of St. Edward’s University to see the fireworks. It’s free and you can sit on the bleachers or blankets.

This is a unique way to view fireworks you should remember for next year. (They are sold out)!

The Fireworks Paddle with the Rowing Dock. You get the best seat in the house. You can kayak, canoe, or paddle board, out on Lady Bird Lake. This would totally be an Instagram worthy moment.
