Bring along a picnic lunch or enjoy a variety of vendor-prepared foods and beverages. When it gets dark, prepare for Fireworks-on-the-Brazos presented by H-E-B. This enormous fireworks extravaganza can be viewed from all locations within the 293-acre park.

Join the fun with Chappell Hill’s Annual July 4th parade, declared “the best small town parade in America!” There will be a smorgasbord of floats, cowboys, antique cars and the renowned Marching Kazoo Band,and more with festivities beginning at 10 a.m.
