We celebrate our nation’s 243rd birthday in just two days. Oftentimes, this means a fun barbecue with friends and family and then fireworks above. Luckily for us, we have a few options to choose from for our San Antonio 4th of July festivities for 2019.
San Antonio 4th of July Festivities for 2019
Woodlawn Lake Park
Haven’t nailed down your 4th of July plans yet? Keep everyone entertained all day long by visiting Woodlawn Lake Park (1103 Cincinnati Ave). Beginning at 10 am on Thursday, treat yourself to tons of family-friendly activities, live entertainment, and food for sale. Then, after the sun goes down, the skies above light up in a mega-display of pyrotechnics. Free admission makes this a “must see” for the entire family!
Downtown River Walk
Take a stroll along the Downtown River Walk from 8:30 pm to 12 am. Here, patriotic-themed lighting and beautiful waving flags adorn the walkway. Can’t make it for the 4th? Stop by on Friday or Saturday evening instead. The display stays up for all three nights. It’s truly a sight to behold and not one that should be missed.
Lady Bird Lake Paddle-Out
Finally, for something truly unique, grab your canoe, kayak or paddleboard. Take it to the Rowing Dock. If you don’t have a canoe, kayak or paddleboard of your own, reserve one for rent on Thursday. Then, row out on the water at dusk and look up. You’ll have the best seat in the house and no rushing to leave once the show ends!
