College Station is widely known for its bountiful expressions of patriotism. Texas A&M’s vaunted Corps of Cadets and the beautiful Brazos Valley Veterans Memorial exemplify how military duty and honor are embedded in our community’s foundation.
On Independence Day, College Station always takes tremendous pride in celebrating the land of the free and the home of the brave. We encourage you to get out and enjoy these exceptional family-friendly events:
Sunday, July 2
- Celebrate the Fourth of July weekend with indoor rock climbing at Stone Co. Climbing! Climbing passes are $8 and they have routes for all age groups and skill levels. If climbing is not your thing, they will also have free hot dogs, JJ’s snow cones, yard games, fire trucks, and more from 5-10 p.m.
Tuesday, July 4
- Brazos Running Co.’s Firecracker 5K starts at 8 a.m. at Century Square.
- The College Station Noon Lions Club’s inaugural Fourth of July Parade celebration begins at 9 a.m. at the Wolf Pen Creek Amphitheater and Festival Site. The free, family friendly features the parade, a Kids Zone, music, train rides, free vision screenings, free watermelon, and more.
- Enjoy the free Fourth of July Fireworks and Drone Show at the Texas A&M-RELLIS campus from your vehicle starting at 9 p.m. Food trucks are available from 6:30-8:45 p.m.
