Although celebrating America's Independence Day will be somewhat different this year, both Tomball and Magnolia still have events planned to celebrate the holiday.

While Tomball had to
cancel its annual street festival, the city will host a socially-distanced firework display at the Four Corners Shopping Center. The event will begin at 9:30 p.m. on July 4 and is free and open to the public. Music will be available through 95.3 FM.

Social distancing guidelines will be in place and event goers are encouraged to self screen before attending. A livestream of the fireworks will also be available on the Tomball Texan for Fun Facebook page.

Magnolia will also host a July 4 celebration at 4:30 p.m. at Unity Park, located at 19450 Unity Park Drive in Magnolia. The event will include fireworks and food from Tressie’s Southern Kitchen and snow cones from Cheri’s N’awlins Sneaux Bawls. Free food will not be provided by the city this year due to COVID-19.

While Magnolia's annual decorated bicycle parade has been canceled, parents can send photos of decorated bicycles to [email protected] beginning July 3 at 4 p.m., for the photos to be displayed on the Magnolia Festival Committee Facebook page.
