Independence Day Celebrations in Seguin

The 4th of July  weekend is filled with activities sponsored by different organizations, all working together to  make the 4th of July Seguin's biggest community celebration. On Thursday, July 3, 2014 locally sponsored Freedom Fiesta returns to the square in downtown Seguin.  The one-day celebration features music, food and fun from 5 p.m. to midnight. On Sunday, June 29, 2014 the San Antonio Symphonic Band plays a traditional concert in Central Park located at 201 S. Austin Street from 7-8:30 p.m., with Sousa marches and other patriotic tunes. And the City of Seguin provides a full day of activities to celebrate our country’s independence on Friday, July 4, 2014.
 
On that day, crowds of flag-waving people, estimated at over 10,000, line the streets of historic downtown Seguin for the annual 4th of July celebration. No one knows for sure how long this event has been held…perhaps since 1838 when Seguin was founded on the banks of Walnut Creek! But no matter how old, each year this celebration gets bigger and better! A solemn ceremony kicks off the day with the annual Flag Raising Ceremony in Central Park at 9 a.m. Music, speakers, pomp and circumstance remind citizens that this is a day of significance for our country.

About the 4th of July Parade

On Friday, July 4, 2014 at 10 a.m. the Biggest Small-town 4th of July Parade in Texas begins with bands, military units, and many local and regional entries creating a continuous parade that runs for about two hours!

Following the parade, many opt for the cooler temperatures at the air-conditioned Coliseum where the Mayor's Luncheon is held. Entertainment and a traditional BBQ are the order of the day at the luncheon held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Advance tickets can be purchased by calling 830-379-3212.

At dusk, the City of Seguin and HEB sponsor a spectacular fireworks display over the golf course at Starcke Park. This is Seguin's biggest party of the year and friends, neighbors and visitors to the area are welcome to join in the fun.

The 4th of July activities cap off a weekend of fun including a Fiesta Swim at the Wave Pool, golf tournament, live music, food and fun. For more information go www.visitseguin.comor go to the City of Seguin web site at http://www.seguintexas.gov.
