Hey there, Lake Travis! It’s the start of the 4th of July holiday and that also means it’s the start of a 3-day weekend.
Let’s celebrate our beloved country’s independence LT style. Kick off your weekend with some live music on Friday night, cooling down with your favorite beverage and a sunset over Lake Travis. But don’t stay out too late!
The 4th of July events start up early on Saturday morning with runs, neighborhood parades, car shows and plenty of family-friendly activities that will last throughout the day. The night sky will be here before you know it … and that means fireworks! You just have to decide where you’re going to watch them this year.
Lake Travis Lifestyle has put together the Top Picks for Celebrating July 4th in Lake Travis & Beyond.
If you drink too much this weekend, be sure to keep your car keys in your pocket and pull up the Uber app. Uber is offering free rides in the Lake Travis area all weekend long. Enter the LAKEATX20 promo code for your free ride (up to $20).
Happy Independence Day and enjoy your weekend!
As always, thank you for supporting our local businesses, events and live music scene — Live Local!
