Nothing says "summer on Galveston Island" better than the 4th of July!
This 4th of July, plan to celebrate the country’s – and your – independence on Galveston Island with a parade, fireworks, special events and more!
This Fourth of July, Galveston will feature its annual Independence Day parade featuring an array of floats, decorated vehicles and performers.
You won't want to miss this stunning display of pyrotechnics as we light up the night sky in celebration of America's Independence Day. The show will take place on the beach, with the beautiful Gulf of Mexico serving as the backdrop.
