Galveston Has Held This July 4th Celebration for 180 Years – Check It Out This Weekend

Summer on Galveston Island does not get much better than the 4th of July! On the evening of July 4th, Galveston Island will celebrate its annual Independence Day with a parade featuring a procession of floats, decorated military vehicles and performers. Don't miss this wonderful evening followed by a dazzling fireworks display over the Gulf of Mexico!

The parade will kick off at 7:00 p.m. with a procession on Seawall Boulevard starting at 59th Street and ending at 25th Street. After the parade, the island will host a 20-minute fireworks show over the Gulf of Mexico at 9:15 p.m. near 37th Street and Seawall Boulevard. At 4:00 p.m., city crews will begin closing streets and detouring traffic in the immediate vicinity of the parade route and fireworks display. Temporary no parking zones along Seawall Boulevard will be in place for both events.

Community collaboration works each year to create The Galveston Marine Corp League Fourth of July Parade. The Marine Corp League, the City of Galveston and community volunteers who create this parade appreciate your support and participation.

The Marine Corps League in Galveston County was created to promote the interests of the United States Marine Corps by serving those currently on active duty in the Marine Corps and those who have been honorably discharged. The League effectively promotes the ideals of American freedom and democracy by voluntarily aiding and rendering assistance to all Marines, FMF Corpsman, their widows and their orphans.

Come out and enjoy this free event with neighbors and friends! Head to Seawall Boulevard early to avoid traffic and grab a great spot for the fireworks show. Admission is free, and all are welcome to attend.
