You Can Enjoy Fireworks Displays This Fourth of July in Katy and Houston
You Can Enjoy Fireworks Displays This Fourth of July in Katy and Houston but there are not a whole lot of choices.

All counties surrounding Houston including Kary ( except for Galveston) have a ban on fireworks this Fourth of July due to the continuing drought. The ban does not apply to organized events. It is my understanding that in Harris County anyone caught setting off fireworks will be subject to 6 months in JAIL and/or a fine of $10,000. I am sure the other counties have similar penalties if the law is broken. Those are stiff penalties for breaking the law. In addition, a violator could set a whole neighborhood on fire. That statement is not a joke or a stretching the truth comment.

The first event is in Katy:

The 22 ND annual Katy Freedom Celebration will occur at 9:00 PM (or right at dusk) at Katy Mills Mall. The fireworks display will offer you and your families an amazing spectacle of light, color and noise in the night time sky. All attendees are asked to bring their own seating and watch the wonderful display from the various parking lots scattered through the mall complex.The display is launched between the east side of the mall and Fort Bend Road. We have seen this display several times from our home in Grand Lakes and it is extremely special.
The second event in Houston:

The Freedom Over Texas or also called Mayor Annise Parker’s Official Freedom Over Texas fourth of July celebration will occur in Eleanor Tinsley Park located at 500 Allen Parkway or just outside downtown Houston. . The cost is a donation of a canned food item of $8.00 per person. The event starts at 4 PM and will last until 10 PM. Music will be played on three stages and will include good ol’ boys Chris Young, Rodney Atkins and Jack Ingram. Volley ball, family games and other entertainment on on tap at this wonderful event. ABC- 13 / KTRK - TV will broadcast this whole show live!! The evening will end with a huge fireworks display that will amaze all who go to see the show. We saw this fireworks display from the top of a building that is at least 10 miles away several years ago and it was just unbelievable!! You can get information by going to the events web site..

Have fun this Fourth of July and be safe at whatever you are doing.. Have a Great Fourth!!!
