CITGO Freedom Over Texas July 4th Celebration
DNCE and Special Guest Hunter Hayes
***Volunteers Needed***

Help Houston celebrate our nation's birthday on Tuesday, July 4, 2017 from 4 - 10 p.m. Celebrating 30 years of July 4th music, fireworks and fanfare on Buffalo Bayou, Houston's signature patriotic event - CITGO Freedom Over Texas - will turn it WAY up with live performances, family activities and stunning pyrotechnics Tuesday, July 4th from 4 - 10 p.m. For the first time in the event's history, the celebration will kick off with a patriotic tribute by the United States Air Force Band of the West. GrammyR-nominated and CMA-winning artist, HUNTER HAYES will follow before multi-platinum selling, 2016 MTV Video Music Award-winning DNCE takes the stage. As is tradition, the evening will conclude with a spectacular blast of fireworks thanks to CITGO who has provided the finale since 2015. This year, CITGO signed on as a dual sponsor providing both the pyrotechnics and titling the event for the next three years. For more details visit
