Preparations for Corpus Christi's 4th of July celebration are now underway.
Festivities for the Mayor's 45th annual Big Bang Fourth of July Fireworks Show sponsored by H-E-B were announced Thursday.
It'll be held along the city's Bayfront at 9:30 p.m. on Sunday, July 3.
Fireworks will be set off from a barge located in the Corpus Christi Bay near the Peoples Street T-Head, but before the light show, folks can enjoy a number of activities taking place at Water's Edge Park.
Before the light show, though, folks can enjoy a number of activities taking place at Water's Edge Park -- like the 7th annual Food Truck Summer Fest.
Participants tell us last year was a huge success, and they are expecting the same this time around.
"All these food trucks and vendors and small businesses, and we are very humbled to be back again this year with the mayor," said <john garcia-7th annual corpus christi food truck summer fest- >
Traffic along Shoreline Boulevard will be closed to ensure pedestrian safety, so make sure to plan accordingly.
