Pay Homage to Our Great Nation During the Brackenridge Independence Day Celebration

The Brackenridge Independence Day Celebration & Fireworks will be held Saturday, July 6th at Brackenridge Park & Campground and is sponsored by the Lavaca-Navidad River Authority. This year’s event will include many activities and is free to the public.

The Antique Tractor Show is from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The tractors on display are brought in by a proud group of individuals and families, all of whom have a common interest in collecting and restoring vintage agricultural equipment that range from a variety of small and large hit & miss engines including John Deere, Farmall, International, Ford, Massey-Ferguson, Minneapolis-Moline, Case, Allis-Chalmers, and more. This event gives today's generation a view of the machinery that once tilled the fields of America.

The Kiddie Tractor Pull starts at 10 a.m. Kids from three to eight are welcome to compete in the action packed, pedal tractor pull. Each tractor has been modified for heavy pulling and is attached to a weight transfer sled. As kids pedal down the path, the weight in the bucket transfers up the sled and makes it harder to pedal. All participants are asked to preregister at 9:30 a.m. Age Groups include 3 year olds, 4-5 year olds, 6-7 year olds, and 8 year olds.

Other contests include: A Watermelon Eating Contest, a Hot Dog Eating Contest, Best Decorated Cabin or Campsite Contest, and a Family Obstacle Course Competition! Following the announcements of the winners, a DJ will be set up on the stage with a dance to begin and will provide a great mix of music for those in attendance. The DJ also provides a nice medley of patriotic music during the fireworks show. The dance will conclude at approximately 11 p.m.

The FREE Fireworks Show at Brackenridge Park & Campground has taken on a life of its own over the years. It is scheduled to start just after 9 p.m. The beautiful fireworks display utilizes a wide variety of fireworks effects for maximum impact and audience appeal. Visitors can best view the event by parking in the grassy field across from the Harry Hafernick Recreation Center. We invite you to bring your family and come enjoy a full day of fun at the Brackenridge Park & Campground!
