EVENT CANCELED

EVENT CANCELED

With the recent spike in COVID-19 cases, new orders from Governor Abbott, and concern for our citizens and visitors to Liberty Hill, we have made a very difficult but necessary decision to CANCEL the Independence Day Spectacular events scheduled for July 3rd at City Park.

A spectacular fireworks show will still take place on July 3rd at 9:30pm. The fireworks will shoot from the grassy field in between the Intermediate and Junior High schools. Families may watch from their cars and are asked to not enter the field.

The Apple Pie and Ice Cream contests will still take place this Saturday, June 27th.

Thank you for being supportive and flexible as we celebrate America’s birthday at a distance but as a community!

LIVE MUSIC

Colby Keeling 6-7pm

Colby Keeling

A native of Lufkin, Texas, country singer/songwriter Colby Keeling has been singing from a young age. From learning to play guitar in high school to playing his first gig while attending college at Texas A&M University, Keeling has gradually become a poised and lively entertainer. Sharing the stage with artists such as Stoney Larue, Cody Canada, Cory Morrow and Parker McCollum, Keeling has developed a knack for amusing and entertaining crowds of young and old alike through his interactive and charismatic live set. Keeling’s debut EP, “Whatever it Takes” explodes out of the speakers with soaring instrumentation and chilling lyrics and is sure to launch the up and coming artist into the ranks of impressive country artists from Texas.

Little Texas 8-9:30pm

Little Texas

As part of the Young Country movement of the early ‘90s, Little Texas were responsible for shaking up the country music world with a new, energetic sound that fused the look and attitude of modern rock music with traditional country themes and styles, bringing a much appreciated bolt of life into the genre. For their efforts, country fans the world over richly rewarded the band, buying up over 7 million of their albums, while critics showered them with 3 Grammy nominations plus honors from both the Academy of Country Music (Vocal Group Of The Year) and the Country Music Association (Album Of The Year).

JUST FOR KIDS

One of our most anticipated attractions of the festival is the Kids Zone. The Kids Zone, located in the West Soccer Field, has 14 stations, with a rock wall, train, water slides, obstacle courses, slip-n-slides and so much more! Because some of the attractions have water, many children like to wear swimsuits under their clothes. The Kids Zone will close at dark so that families can prepare for the fireworks show.

To help encourage social distancing this year, we will not have the infamous Beach Ball Drop, but don’t worry, it will be back next year!

Be on the lookout in the Kids Zone! An undercover agent will be passing out Food Truck Coupons for FREE food and snacks to children practicing social distancing, exhibiting good behavior, participating in random acts of kindness, and having LOTS of fun!

The Kids Zone and all activities are FREE.

City Park will have limited Handicapped Parking on a first-come, first-serve basis at the South Entrance.
