Charge up those phones, because this year’s CITGO Freedom Over Texas has tons of selfie and other photo ops, including a Jose Altuve cutout, a baseball 12 feet in circumference and a salute to our armed forces with helicopters, tanks and Jeeps. Between 5:30 and 6 p.m., there’ll also be a presentation of colors and everybody’s invited to join in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. “Just to remind people what the day is about,” says Susan Christian, director of the Mayor’s Office of Special Events and producer of the patriotic shebang, now in its 30th year. “It’s about celebrating America’s birthday and those values that we as Americans cherish. At the top of the list is freedom.” Music, games and concessions round out the event, which culminates in 17 minutes of whiz-bang-boom fireworks.

4 to 10 p.m. Tuesday. Eleanor Tinsley and Sam Houston Parks, 500 Allen Parkway and 1000 Bagby. For information, visit freedomovertexas.org. Admission is free for children under five years of age. $8 to $10.
