The Mayor’s Official 4th of July Celebration has been a six hour event of festivities and tradition in Houston, for decades.  Located in the newly renovated Eleanor Tinsley Park on Buffalo Bayou, it has become Houston’s signature annual Independence Day celebration and attracts nationally recognized recording artists as well as regional and local talent.  This year’s festivities include the Southwest Airlines Sky Stage, featuring vintage aircraft flyovers; the Walmart All-American Kids Zone, a children’s entertainment area with a stage featuring entertainment for young and old, alike; KBR Liberty Park brings military assets such as tanks and helicopters to the event along with all five branches of the military; the Bud Light Zone, featuring the All-American Beer Garden and a rockin’ good time; and the Dr Pepper One of a Kind Zone, featuring all four Houston professional sports team set-ups, music, food, and a cooling area.  The event culminates with a Texas size concert featuring a national recording artist and one of the largest fireworks displays in the USA.
