Shell Freedom Over Texas
Houston’s signature patriotic celebration, Shell Freedom Over Texas, returns with a salute to America’s Frontline Heroes. The annual day-long festival is on hold for one more season, however - Houstonians can enjoy the city’s cherished tradition of music and patriotic moments via live broadcast.
The event will include performances by Lee Brice, Jimmie Allen, Alanis Sophia, and Brian Jack and the Zydeco Gamblers.
Fireworks will reach 800 feet, almost doubling the height of the traditional show, for more to enjoy from further away. Open spaces and neighborhood parks with a view of the western downtown skyline are ideal. Eleanor Tinsley Park will be open for fireworks viewing only for families that wish to park downtown and walk (Allen Parkway and Memorial Drive will be closed for fall out).
