Independence Day is a celebrated series of events in the Hill Country. It is a day spent remembering our heritage and the comradery of the day’s history. Dare I say it is not even a day but a weekend-long occurrence of freedom, fireworks, and, in Texas, meat on the grill. Here are some star-spangled ways to celebrate, from adults-only to kid-centered.

The Summer in the Hills event series at the Omni has its annual weekend-long 4th of July celebration filled with exciting events, live entertainment, and special experiences for guests.

Saturday, July 6, resort guests can attend the annual Red, White, and Blue barbecue featuring live music by Aaron McDonnell and the Neon Eagles. The event will also feature a delicious Texas-style barbecue and a spectacular fireworks show.

DJ Ben Green will keep the tunes going all night long.

Going all out, family style? Start with the Lost Pines 4th of July Parade, where guests can decorate their bikes, strollers, and wagons to create floats for the festive parade throughout the property. Popsicles, shaved ice, arts and crafts, and more will accompany the parade. Kids can cool off with a fun backyard foam party. Then, join Frontier Fest, a fun celebration featuring live entertainment. Of course, what is the 4th without a spectacular fireworks display? Guests can end the night with a bang as the property lights up the sky with a dazzling fireworks show at 9 p.m. Snacks and a full bar will add to the celebratory vibe.
