Marble Falls putting on spectacular fireworks show
The city of Marble Falls and First Baptist Church of Marble Falls are teaming up to celebrate Independence Day in a big way.
The city is taking the reins of the Fourth of July fireworks show this year, but with renovations at Lakeside Park ongoing through the summer, officials needed to find a different spot for public viewing. And First Baptist Church of Marble Falls stepped in.
While the spectacular fireworks show starts shortly after dark July 4, you can enjoy an afternoon of fun beginning at 4 PM at the church, 901 La Ventana Drive, including a rock wall, bounce houses, waterslides, an interactive photo booth, giant lawn games, and GaGa ball.
A number of great musical acts will entertain throughout the afternoon and into the the evening.
There will be a slew of food trucks and vendors, and Marble Falls High School band members will be grilling all-American hotdogs and hamburgers as a booster club fundraiser.
Since it is July in Texas, temperatures will likely be in the 90s. The church will open its doors so people can cool.
The church grounds will have plenty of seating for the main event. You are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets, but glass containers and alcohol are not permitted. Lakeside Park will be closed, so you can’t go there to watch the fireworks.
City officials said the show will be "better than ever.” The fireworks will be launched from a barge on Lake Marble Falls.
Boats are allowed on the lake during the show but will need to be on the water and in place by 8 PM.
Parking is available at the church with overflow on Bendito Way and Corazon. There will be additional parking in the Gateway area across US 281 with buses shuttling people to and fro. La Ventana Drive will be closed during the event, so you need to get to the church off US 281 at Max Starcke Dam Road or FM 2147 at Esperanza Drive.
If you take photos (and we know you will), share them on our Facebook page. We’d love to see them.
