The Woodlands will celebrate Independence Day with the Fourth of July Parade, Stars at Night, Red, Hot & Pool, and the Red, Hot and Blue Festival.

The 1.3-mile parade on July 3 features marching bands, fire engines, clowns, floats, and more.

Stars at Night – A Salute to Service on July 3 at 8 pm welcomes The Woodlands Symphony Orchestra to the Main Stage at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. The event will recognize service stars during the pandemic. Tickets are not required for this event. 

During Red, Hot & Pool on July 4, visitors can enjoy a fun cool down at all Township pools from 11 am to 6 pm. Lifeguards at each pool will provide fun activities from 12-4 pm. Light refreshments will also be available while supplies last. Daily fees will apply for residents and non-residents; entry is free for season pool pass holders.

The celebration will continue into the evening with the 24th annual Red, Hot & Blue Festival, featuring entertainment at five locations in The Woodlands from 6-10 pm. All locations, with the exception of Hughes Landing, will feature strolling entertainment and concessions.

The annual celebration will culminate with an 18-minute fireworks show at approximately 9:30 pm with four launch locations. Residents can enjoy both the sights and sounds of the fireworks extravaganza by tuning into KSTAR Country 99.7 FM, which will broadcast the choreographed patriotic soundtrack for the 2021 event.

A variety of concessions and beverages will be available for purchase. Coolers, picnic baskets and lawn chairs are permitted.
