Port O’Connor’s grand celebration of Independence Day will be held Saturday, July 5th on King Fisher Beach. The giant Fireworks Show begins at dark, but come early to enjoy the water, the sand, and array of food, drink, craft and novelty vendors on the beach.

This will be the 46th year that the Port O’Connor Chamber of Commerce has presented the Fireworks Show, a favorite celebration for many in our area.

“It gets bigger and better each year,” said Bill Tigrett, coordinator of fund raising. “That means it’s also more costly, although the Chamber happily presents this free of charge to all comers. But, your help is needed to offset the cost, and any amount you can give is much appreciated.”

Donations can be sent to: POC Chamber Fireworks, Port O’Connor Chamber of Commerce, Post Office Box 701, Port O’Connor, TX 77982.

“We’d love to have you come early for the show and spend some time enjoying the amenities of our town,” Bill said. “We have many shops with everything from necessities to sea shells, clothing and gifts, to offer. We’ve got some great restaurants here, too. You might also enjoy the bird walk at Boggy Nature Preserve or watching the pelicans and dolphins on the canal. Whatever you choose to do, we think you will enjoy spending the day here in Port O’Connor.”

Although you can find everything you need here, you may want to come prepared to settle in and watch the show with lawn chairs/blankets, insect repellent, and your own chilled beverages and snacks. The Chamber makes every effort for this to be a fun-filled and safe celebration for you and your family. Ample security will be in place and emergency personnel will be stationed nearby. Port O’Connor welcomes you to come enjoy this exciting Fireworks Show.
Keep in mind that the beach road will be one-way all day and the road will be closed just before the show begins. Due to safety regulations, fireworks may not be shot off on the beach.
