Star Spangled Salute Returns to Midland After Being Cancelled Last Year
A sign things are getting back to normal is the return of 4th of July festivities to Midland.
According to the Midland Reporter-Telegram, the 2021 Star-Spangled Salute will return to downtown Midland this Saturday, July 3 at Centennial Park and the Bush Convention Center.
That morning at 10am will begin with the 58th Annual Children's Sidewalk Parade, registration will begin at 9am for the children's parade.
The parade will begin at the Municipal Courthouse parking lot at 200 N. Baird St.
The event will be for the whole family and will include a fun zone for the kids, food from local food trucks, a beer garden, and live music from local bands including the Tim Kreitz Band, Dirty Glass, and Current Nine.
The night wraps up at 10pm with a fireworks show so be sure to bring lawn chairs and blankets to enjoy the display.
This will be the first July 4th celebration at the newly finished Centennial Park in downtown Midland.
If you have not seen the new Centennial Park and Bush Convention Center, this is a perfect time to see it and feel like you are spending the holiday in Dallas or Houston instead of Midland.
The park has a splash pad which will give kids the best time on a hot summer day and with the children's parade, food trucks, live music, and fireworks, it will be a 4th of July to remember and come back to for years to come.
Be safe and have fun this holiday weekend.
