However, a 4th of July party is not a party unless there is a Texas rendition of the same.  This year, Houston will be its annual lively outdoor festival that will feature star-spangled performances on the Freedom Stage in the Freedom over Texas annual celebration that takes place in downtown Houston.

WHEN:Friday, July 4, 2014 ... 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. 

WHERE: Sam Houston Park, Eleanor Tinsley Park, and along Allen Parkway
