Friday, July 4th
Picnic and Fireworks at the Texas State Aquarium
Fireworks at Corpus Christi Museum of Science & History
These are two of the best ways to enjoy Independence Day. Both of these venues are encouraging families to bring their lawn chairs and enjoy the Fourth of July fireworks displays. Both will be serving food and beverages; both charge a small fee. From either location you should be able to see all the amazing fireworks – from Harbor Bridge, Whataburger Field and those put on by the city.
