Tomball City Council members approved a resolution June 1 supporting the 48th annual Tomball Night and Parade scheduled for Aug. 7 in downtown Tomball. The chamber's request of council asks for assistance in closing several city streets for the event and for permission to put on a fireworks display out of season, according to the meeting information.
According to meeting information, Tomball Night is expected to attract about 10,000 visitors. However, a decision will be made no later than July 6 whether to hold this year's event.
"The approval to do it does not mean it's a guarantee," said Craig Bogner, chairman of the Greater Tomball Area Chamber of Commerce, which hosts the event, during the June 1 meeting.
The chamber's request to hold the Aug. 7 event is contingent on Gov. Greg Abbott's mandates at that time in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, meeting information states.
“We understand that so many of these things are a moving target. ... If we have to adjust, we’ll adjust," City Manager Rob Hauck said during the June 1 meeting.
