One of the best things about summer is celebrating our beloved country’s independence. The 4th of July weekend in the Lake Travis area and beyond is filled with events that include neighborhood parades, cookouts, live music, and fireworks!
Lake Travis Lifestyle has put together some of the awesome ways you can celebrate the Red, White and Blue. It’s a big weekend that starts a little early with live music on Thursday night, so we decided to get this info out today instead of Friday. That way, you’ll have plenty of time to plan your social calendars for the three-day weekend (and we can take the day off on Friday).
Happy Independence Day and enjoy your weekend!
