Our charming community doesn’t fall short when it comes to celebrating the 4th of July! Many use this time off to spend with loved ones and enjoy the beautiful fireworks and tasty food found by the Bay! 

If you are looking for a fun filled day Celebrating Our Country's Independence, look no further than the Bayshore Communities for Food, Fellowship & Fireworks! 

Every year the Residents of Bayview organize a small, but Festive Parade in Celebration of Independence Day. Neighbors join in decorating their golf carts, bikes, and occasionally a tractor, then parade through the Canopy of Oaks offering Smiles and Candy to all Bystanders. This year, the parade is planned to commence around 9:30am at the intersection of Middleton St & Bayshore Dr. in Bayview, and is open to anyone who wants to participate or watch. This is a fun activity for the entire family!

Bayshore Spillway Park  is an excellent vantage point for Fireworks after Sunset!

Friends and Family spending the 4th of July  on the Bay can partake in all the fun activities the Bay has to offer. From Fishing to Paddle boarding, or simply enjoying the sunset, the Bay caters to all! 

If Lively Music and roller coasters are your idea of an ALL American 4th of July, you will be delighted with an evening at the Kemah Boardwalk. The Firework Show is not to be missed, and is set to begin at 9:30pm.

If a more leisurely evening suits you... just before sunset, find a spot at on the Bay and prepare to be dazzled with no less than 5 separate Firework showcases around the shoreline of Galveston Bay!

Wishing you all a Fun & Safe 4th of July Holiday!
