Public offices and facilities will be closed Tuesday for Independence Day, and several venues plan fireworks displays.

Public offices and facilities will be closed Tuesday for Independence Day, and several venues plan fireworks displays.

Those planning to celebrate the Fourth of July with the city of Cedar Park on Tuesday should expect a few changes from last year’s events.

“We are doing a few things differently in an effort to improve traffic exiting the celebration once fireworks conclude,” said city spokesperson Jennie Huerta.

The city’s festivities start with a parade at 10 a.m., which will feature more than 140 walkers, including scout troops, youth groups, local businesses and musical performance groups. The parade will also include more than 50 vehicles including police, fire and military vehicles.

The parade begins at the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park, 2100 Avenue of the Stars, and travels south on Discovery Boulevard. It will then head west on Main Street to the Recreation Center. Parade spectators should park at H-E-B Center at Cedar Park or Cedar Park Recreation Center, 1435 Main St., and are encouraged to bring seating.

Event maps are available here.

The free celebration continues with activities from 4-10 p.m. in Elizabeth Milburn Park, 1901 Sun Chase Boulevard. Events include live music, bingo, a washer tournament, bounce houses and free watermelon. The pool will be open from 1-8 p.m., and daily pool rates will apply.

A fireworks display will begin about 9:15 p.m. and will be followed by the “After Glow” Dance. Fees apply for food concessions, face painting, carnival games, hamster balls, super slide, quad jump, Races2u, spinner ride and the rock wall.

As part of this year’s improvements, the city is closing Cypress Creek Road from El Salido Parkway and Sun Chase Boulevard between 8:30-10:30 p.m. Spectators will not be allowed to sit in the middle of the closed roadway, as it must be kept available for fire trucks.

Traffic exiting Milburn Park and vehicles parked east of Milburn Park must move in an east or south direction; vehicles west of Milburn Park must travel in a west, north or south direction.

As a reminder, fireworks are illegal both inside city limits and within 5,000 feet of city limits. Illegally possessing fireworks carries a punishment of up to 180 days in jail and a possible $2,000 fine.
