This year’s Independence Day celebration happens at Conn Brown Harbor Park on Saturday, July 1st. Fireworks will blast off promptly at 9:15 p.m., barring any unforeseen events. Please take note of these important event details.

Parking & Traffic Restrictions

Independence Day Celebration - No Parking

Parking is limited. DO NOT drive on or over the walking paths or curbs. There will be barriers set up, and violators will be cited. Parking is PROHIBITED next to the bounce house and food truck attractions. Please park legally and walk up to those attractions.

No Man’s Land is exactly what it means. Do not park or venture into the red-shaded areas. This includes while in a boat. This exludes the pyrotechnic officials, of course.

Parking violations could result in towing due to safety requirements. In addition, violations of the traffic plan could also cause damage to the CIty walking trail. Such damage could result in criminal charges. Again, DO NOT DRIVE on or across the walking path except through open designated inlets and exits. #KeepOurAPHarborBeautiful

Alternate Viewing Area

Don’t forget you’ll have front seat viewing from our wonderful flatlands across the Dale Miller Bridge, too! You don’t necessarily have to be on the Habor for a good view.

Planning to Pop Fireworks, Understand the RULES!

In general, it’s ILLEGAL to pop fireworks inside the City Limits. If we catch you, you will receive a ticket. It’s far too dangerous, especially under these extremely dry conditions. Don’t be the one responsible for burning down your neighbor’s house, or worse – YOURS!

The City does not generally regulate the discharge of fireworks in the incorporated sections of Nueces County (east of the Dale Miller bridge) during these celebratory holidays. During other times, our city ordinance prohibits the discharge of fireworks anywhere inside City Limits.

Here’s an illustration where the celebratory discharge of fireworks will go unregulated for this holiday.

So, if you plan to pop, GO EAST OF THE DALE MILLER BRIDGE. If you pop inside the primary populated areas of the City, you will be cited.

Happy Independence Day, AP!
