Fourth of July in Johnson City is made up of the two most important ingredients for any Independence Day celebration: a parade and fireworks.

Fourth Fest begins at 10 AM on Thursday, July 4, with a parade downtown. Stake out your spot to see floats, tractors, bicycles, horses, and fire trucks on the route, which goes from the high school on Nugent Street to Pecan Street, Avenue G, Bluebonnet Lane, and back to Nugent Street, where participants then start a second loop. Anyone interested in registering for the parade can do so by printing and filling out the online application and mailing it to the Johnson City Chamber of Commerce, P.O. Box 485, Johnson City, TX 78636, or emailing it to The chamber office is located at 100 E. Main St.

After the parade, everyone takes a break until nightfall when a fireworks show is held at the Blanco County Fairgrounds, 619 US 281. Bring lawn chairs, snacks, and a cooler.

Although the show is free, chamber Executive Director Frances Ann Giron said monetary donations are “happily accepted” and go toward the next year’s fireworks.

Call the Johnson City Chamber of Commerce at (830) 868-7684 or visit its website for more information.
