The Austin Symphony Orchestra is giving a free July 4th concert at the Long Center. Their final number, Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture, will be accompanied by a fireworks display over Lady Bird Lake.
This annual Austin tradition was cancelled last year due to the extreme drought conditions. Even though much of the western US is still dry, central Texas had some rain this spring. So Austin’s July 4th celebration will once again include fireworks.
I have been keeping an eye on the preparations today…
Stage set up at the Long Center?
Tow Away signs posted at Auditorium Shores?
Port-a-potties in place?
Speakers ready to blast downtown Austin?
