The city of New Braunfels will host a July Fourth spectacular at Landa Park on Thursday.

The city of New Braunfels will celebrate the Independence Day holiday with an annual Fourth of July fireworks display at Landa Park on Thursday, July 4, according to a city news release.

The fireworks display is scheduled for 9:15 p.m. The fireworks will be launched from Landa Lake and will be viewable from surrounding areas.

A free concert featuring the United States Air Force Band of the West will kick off the Fourth of July festivities at the Landa Park Dance Slab at 6:30 p.m.

“Landa Park, Fredericksburg Fields and the Landa Park Golf Course at Comal Springs—these will all be great viewing sites,” said Stacey Dicke, the director of the New Braunfels Parks and Recreation Department.

Seating will be available for the fireworks display on the Landa Park Golf Course, with the exception of the putting greens, beginning at 6 p.m. Viewers are also encouraged to listen to a live broadcast of patriotic music, timed to accompany the fireworks display, on station KGNB 1420 AM.

In recognition of the Fourth of July holiday, the parks and recreation administrative office, Landa Recreation Center, and Fischer Park Nature Education Center will be closed. The Landa Park Aquatic Complex, Landa Park Boathouse, and Landa Park Mini-Golf will close at 7 p.m.

The possession or use of any type of firework is prohibited inside New Braunfels city limits, and anyone found in possession or caught using fireworks may be issued a citation and have their fireworks confiscated.

Fireworks can be legally transported through city limits inside a locked glove box, trunk or in the bed of a truck. By law, fireworks must remain unopened in their original packaging and be placed in the storage section of a vehicle.

Any citizen that needs to report the use of fireworks or a noise violation should contact the nonemergency line of the New Braunfels Police Department at 830-221-4100. Additional information can be obtained from the office of the New Braunfels Fire Marshal at 830-221-4200.
