[ARCHIVED] Fireworks show will be drive-in celebration with new amenities, distancing


Parks & Recreation will host the City of Victoria’s annual Fourth of July fireworks show at the Victoria Community Center in a new drive-in format, allowing residents to park their cars to watch the patriotic show while keeping their distance from other attendees.

Parking opens at 5 p.m., and fireworks start at 9:30 p.m. Residents will be able to park their cars in the community center parking lot and on the grounds. Parking attendants will direct parking on the grounds. Residents may also park in the nearby vicinity to watch the show, provided that they are parked legally. Parks & Recreation officials estimate that the parking space will be sufficient to accommodate the number of residents who normally attend the yearly event.

For the first time this year, residents will be able to download the Skywonder Pyrotechnics app to listen to music synced to the fireworks show, receive updates and hear announcements during the event. The music will also be broadcast over the community center loudspeakers.

Parks & Recreation is seeking food trucks for the event. Residents are welcome to bring their own food and beverages as long as they do not bring any glass.

Cars will need to be turned off during the event. Residents will be allowed to exit their cars but must maintain 6 feet of separation from other attendees. Facial coverings and hand sanitizer are strongly encouraged.

For more information or to register a food truck, contact Parks & Recreation at 361-485-3200.

UPDATE: The cornhole/washers tournament previously scheduled to take place before the fireworks show has been cancelled due to public health concerns.
