Rio Grande Valley Fourth of July celebrations


RIO GRANDE VALLEY, Texas – There are celebrations across the country to honor the nation’s independence, and right here in the Rio Grande Valley the festivities are just getting started.

Residents and visitors alike take to the beach for a fun time with loved ones. We met with a few South Padre Island residents with a positive message for the environment.

“I promise to have fun, help others have fun, and unlitter. To unlitter is to properly dispose more garbage than you generate.” Said Dennis Barret, a South Padre Island resident.

Fireworks on South Padre Island will begin taking place at 9:15 P.M.

If you missed the parade show on the beach, you can catch the pyrotechnic displays every weekend during the summer season.
