New Braunfels to Celebrate July 4, Honor City’s 175th Anniversary with Huge Fireworks Display
New Braunfels’ Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular returns to Landa Park at 9:15 p.m. Sunday, July 4.
The beloved annual tradition was canceled last year due to COVID-19 but this year’s display is billed as “the largest professional pyrotechnical display ever seen in the skies over New Braunfels.”
That’s thanks to a generous donation from Joy and Rocky Hill in honor of the 175th anniversary of the city’s founding.
“We are so excited for the return of the Fireworks Spectacular to Landa Park,” said Stacie Dicke, Parks and Recreation Director. “And this year’s event will really be something spectaular to behold. Thanks to the Hill’s generous contribution, this year’s show will feature essentially twice the pyrotechnic firepower from previous fireworks displays. And we may have a few other surprises in store for those in attendance on the 4th of July.”
Fireworks are fired over Landa Park and are viewable throughout Landa Park, the Landa Park Golf Course at Comal Springs, and the Fredericksburg Baseball Fields.
The public is asked to arrive early, expect large crowds, and be mindful of park rules. Lawn chairs and blankets are recommended. The event also will be broadcast on KGNB 1420 AM, which will play music coordinated with the fireworks.
Chief of Police Keith Lane advises residents to leave fireworks to the professionals.
“Remember that, without a permit, the possession or use of any kind of firework is illegal inside the city limits of New Braunfels,” he said.
