The Flint Hills Resources Patriotic Parade will start promptly at 6 p.m. The route will begin at I-37 & Shoreline Blvd. and travel southbound to Park St. This parade has been going strong since its inception in 1977.

The Stellar Energy Harbor Bridge Light Show experience brought to you by Malkan Interactive, will start at 9 p.m. Tune your radio to the following stations for choreographed music: 92.7FM, 95.5FM, and 1440AM. 


The H-E-B Firework Show will be set off from a barge located in the Corpus Christi Bay just north of the People’s Street T-Head. The firework show is choreographed to music and will begin at 9:30 p.m.
