San Antonio's Official July Fourth Celebration
The largest Fourth of July celebration in San Antonio is also its official celebration. This event takes place at Woodlawn Lake and is extremely, extremely popular. In fact, families even camp out the night before to get a prime spot. If you are going to go to this event, we highly recommend that you get there as early as possible. In addition to a jaw-dropping fireworks show, there's also a parade that begins at 11 a.m. and an entertaining carnival filled with games and activities. One unique section of the festivities is the Military Appreciation Zone that is only open to the families of active or retired military.
