Celebrate national independence at the very site where Texas gained its independence in 1836:  Washington on the Brazos State Historic Site, between Brenham and Navasota.             

Presented by H-E-B, the annual 4th of July celebration includes a day filled with family activities from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday, July 4, 2014.  Highlights of the celebration are the free music concert at 7:30 p.m. in the park’s amphitheatre, followed by a fireworks extravaganza with patriotic music at approximately 9:30 p.m.   Buses will run constantly from 1 to 10 p.m. to shuttle guests to the different areas of the park, at no charge.

Visitors can bring picnics and are encouraged to bring blankets, lawn chairs and flashlights for the firework viewing.  State park rules apply; alcohol is prohibited.  As always, admission to the park and parking is free. KTEX/KWHI will broadcast the fireworks display live.

Visitors can also tour the historic sites within the park during the day, including the Star of the Republic Museum (administered by Blinn College) from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; the Barrington Living History Farm from noon to 8 p.m., and Independence Hall from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.—all at regular admission fees.
