The City of League City will hold the annual July 4th celebration on Thursday, July 4, from 11:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. at League Park at 200 N. Park St.  The Mayor, City Council, and City staff will be serving refreshments in appreciation of the citizens of League City.  There will be live music, entertainment, more than 4,000 hotdogs, snow cones, cotton candy and nachos.

“This is a great event for the entire family.  Come out and enjoy the Boundless Playground and the koi pond at League Park and stay for the food, entertainment and fun,” said Director of Parks Chien Wei.  “Bring your patriotic spirit and celebrate this special day with us”. 


LEAGUE CITY FIRE MARSHAL WARNS RESIDENTS ABOUT THE USE OF FIREWORKS

The City of League City’s Fire Marshal’s Office would like to remind residents that selling, buying, using, or possessing fireworks in the city limits of League City is illegal.  Fire marshals will be on patrol during the holiday week and citations will be issued for violations.  Parents of children using illegal fireworks will be cited as well. Those who are citied could face fines.

There are legal fireworks alternatives available.   Noisemakers and “poppers” (items that you pull a string to make noise or throw a pea-sized device on the ground to make it pop) are available in local stores and are allowed.  Sparklers are also allowed, but may be more dangerous than most people assume.

 “Please remember that while they are legal, sparklers can be very dangerous and residents should use extreme caution when using them,” said Wanda Martin, League City Fire Marshal.   Martin also cautions residents that sparklers can reach temperatures of 1200°F and they can retain the heat even after the sparks have stopped flying. “Independence Day holiday is a time of celebration, we want to ensure that those celebrations are done with safety and fire prevention in mind”, said Martin. 

To report the illegal use of fireworks in the City of League City, please call the League City Police Department’s non-emergency line at 281-332-2566.
