Despite Drought, Missouri City’s July 4th Celebration Will be a Blast of Fun & Fireworks
Despite drought conditions in the area, the “Show Me City’s” 27th annual Fourth of July Celebration at Buffalo Run Park, will be a blast of fun and fireworks. The event will take place on Monday, July 4 at 1122 Buffalo Run Blvd., from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. In addition to a fireworks extravaganza that will explode into a spray of amazing colors over the park’s lakes, free entertainment will include Laser Tag, video games, Bounce Houses, a Rock Wall and other activities. For more information, please call 281-403-8637.
Although the City display will go on, residents are advised that Fort Bend County has placed a 60-hour ban on the sale or use of fireworks, effective June 24. County Judge Robert Hebert has petitioned Gov. Rick Perry to extend the ban through 7 a.m. July 5. If granted, individuals in the County would be prohibited from using fireworks during this year’s July 4th holiday. The order does not apply to municipal and government events or to private displays that have received advance approval by the County Fire Marshal.
Dire drought conditions prompted Judge Hebert to issue the order. Similar bans have been implemented in communities countywide.
