July 4th Celebration
In most places, Independence Day is just a one-day celebration. Not so in Baytown, where the party goes on twice as long. Starting on July 3 with concerts, the party continues on July 4 with a five-mile run, a parade, and live music.

The event, held at Baytown’s Bicentennial Park, concludes with a spectacular fireworks show.
