More specifically, come for the best American tradition: 4th of July! Now that things are returning to normal, many locals and visitors are gearing up for an incredible 4th of July in South Padre Island. Take a look at what kind of events and activities you can expect while celebrating the holiday:
Fourth of July Fireworks
As the world dealt with COVID last year, many of the annual traditions and events for the 4th of July had to be postponed or outright canceled. However, things are back to normal right here on South Padre Island, letting locals and visitors enjoy all of the festivities. Nothing says 4th of July quite like a dazzling display of classic fireworks lighting up the sky. The annual Fourth of July Fireworks returns this year for more fun than ever. This year’s firework display will begin at 9:15 PM and last for approximately one hour. Guests will be able to see the display best near the coast as the fireworks are sent off over the water. Watch the fireworks from the comfort of the beach or at a local beachside bar or restaurant. More specifically, the fireworks will be viewable from anywhere surrounding Laguna Madre Bay. Certain cruises may be available to let you catch the display from out on the water too. Bring in the 4th of July the right way with this incredible fireworks display on South Padre Island.
Intocable at Cameron County Amphitheater
Not all events during your stay for the 4th of July have to be patriotic or related to the holiday itself. Make sure to kick back with a variety of other events right here on South Padre Island during your stay. Live music has finally returned to South Padre Island after many live performances were cancelled in the past year. Before catching the Fourth of July Fireworks display on South Padre Island stop by the Cameron County Amphitheater to see Intocable’s live musical performance. Intocable will be putting one sets of the best Latin music in the industry and is guaranteed to have an incredible night of live music. The show starts at 7:00 PM allowing you to catch the band right before the fireworks kick off later in the evening. Now that is one fun way to see live music again!
South Padre Island Farmer’s Market
One of the best ways to catch local goods crafted right from South Padre Island is to visit the local Farmer’s Market. The South Padre Island Farmer’s Market takes place every Sunday during the summer season from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM meaning it will also land on July 4th this year.
