Galveston to Host Free Fireworks Shows Every Weekend This Summer
 
 
GALVESTON, Texas (June 2, 2017) – In Galveston, visitors don’t have to wait until the 4th of July to see fireworks. That’s because the island will host free fireworks shows every weekend this summer.
 
The beachfront fireworks shows will take place at 9 p.m. on Sundays beginning this weekend (June 4) and ending Sept. 3. Sponsored by the Galveston Island Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB), the fireworks displays will launch over the Gulf of Mexico near Seawall Boulevard and 37th Street.
 
The fireworks shows provide an opportunity for visitors to extend their weekends and enjoy additional entertainment at the beach.
 
For more information about Galveston tourism, visit www.galveston.com or call 1-888-GAL-ISLE.
 
Looking to stay in Galveston after the fireworks? You can save big on accommodations when you stay mid-week. Rates in Galveston are significantly lower for those choosing to book their overnight stays Sunday through Thursday. For deep discounts on attractions, check out Galveston Island Pass!
