Galveston Island July 4th Fireworks


Nothing says “summer on Galveston Island” better than the 4th of July spectacular fireworks display over the Gulf of Mexico.  Don’t miss this wonderful evening with a glittering parade followed by a dazzling fireworks display over the Gulf.

Galveston Island will celebrate its annual Independence Day with a parade featuring floats, decorated military vehicles and performers. The parade will kick off at 7:00 p.m. with a procession on Seawall Boulevard starting at 59th Street and ending at 25th Street.  After the parade, the island will host a 20-minute fireworks show over the Gulf of Mexico at 9:15 p.m. near 37th Street and Seawall Boulevard.


Suggested Viewing Spots

The island famous Spot, located at 3204 Seawall Boulevard with open air deck seating is a great place to grab a bite to eat and watch the parade go by and then the awesome fireworks over the Gulf.  Galveston Brick House Tavern & Tap, located at 3502 Seawall Boulevard is another great spot with open air, covered seating to watch all the action. You’ll be able to see the fireworks in front of By The Sea Condominiums at 7310 Seawall Boulevard, but you won’t be able to hear them.  Hearing the bursts go hand in hand with the visual effect.

Free Concert at Hotel Galvez & Spa

The Galveston Community Band and friends have teamed up with the Hotel Galvez to present patriotic music before and during Galveston’s July 4th fireworks show. The band is performing from 8:45 p.m. through the conclusion of the fireworks.  Bring a chair or a blanket and settle down on the lawn of the Historic Hotel Galvez, 2024 Seawall Boulevard for live music and fireworks. This is free to attend and always a fun family time.
