Really, though, its all about the fireworks. Each year the pyrotechnics get bigger and better for this event, which is televised statewide. The explosions span the length of the Buffalo Bayou west of the Sabine Bridge and can be seen from any Neartown location. In other words, they can be enjoyed just as easily from a downtown backyard with a few friends, a grill and a cooler full of any beer you choose were just sayin
The fun starts at 4 p.m., with the fireworks scheduled for 9:30 p.m. Eleanor Tinsley Park, 500 Allen Parkway. For information, call 832-393-0868 or visit www.chevysfreedomovertexas.com. $5 to $8.
