Locals prepare to celebrate Fourth of July

Events in both Midland and Odessa provide an opportunity for everyone to show their American spirit.


Locals will have two opportunities to celebrate the Fourth of July with a bang at the 2021 Star-Spangled Salute in Midland and the Firecracker Fandango in Odessa.

The Star-Spangled Salute will be held on July 3 from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. at Centennial Park and the Bush Convention Center.

The event will begin with the 58th annual Children’s Sidewalk Parade and close out with a firework show. It will also feature live music, a photo contest and local vendors selling food and goods. 

Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets to sit on.
