And the sounds of celebration will continue to ring out this weekend across Calhoun County as four more Fourth of July celebrations are set to go off.



Kicking off the dizzying display of pyrotechnics will be the annual show at King Fisher Park on Saturday, July 2.

The event starts at 10 a.m. with food vendors offering such things as snow cones and funnel cakes. Arts and crafts vendors will be inside the pavilion. They will be open until the fireworks show starts at 9 p.m. It will run for 30 to 40 minutes off of King Fisher Pier.



Riders on horseback, carrying the United States and Texas flags, will kick off the annual fireworks display in Haterius Park in Olivia on Sunday, July 3. The event is put on by Bayside Community Church and starts at dusk. There will be free hotdogs, watermelon, and drinks for those in attendance.


Join the fun at Bayfront Peninsula Park starting at 4 p.m. Sunday, July 3. Bring your cooler and picnic, or visit the food vendors while you enjoy music and tailgating until the fireworks start at dusk.



Bubba’s Cajun Style Restaurant will, once again, set off the sparkling lights to commemorate the nation’s birthday at Swan Point on Monday, July 4. The fireworks are set to go off at dusk.

Calhoun County commissioners banned aerial fireworks in unincorporated areas during a special meeting on June 22. Several areas were designated as sites where fireworks could be set off: Bill Sanders Park, Haterias Park, King Fisher Beach (sand area only), Magnolia Beach, Port Alto Beach, Six Mile Park, and private piers more than 100 feet long with fireworks being pointed toward the water.
