The Mayor needs you to help Houston lead Texas in celebrating our nation’s birthday! The Mayor’s Official Fourth of July Celebration, Freedom Over Texas, will bring thousands of people into the heart of Houston for food, fun, and fireworks!

To help put Houston’s best foot forward, we need your help as event volunteers. Assignments will include assisting as festival greeters, ticket sellers, gate scanners, or helping out in one of the many zones that make up the festival’s infrastructure. In return for your time, you will be treated to world-class entertainment, free parking, dinner, great refreshments, and a dazzling fireworks display. We hope to see you on the 4th!
