Fire up the grill! It’s Independence Day! It's the time of year when we all love to celebrate America’s birthday. Whether you’re hosting (or attending) a party, the Baytown Police Department has some tips to help ensure that you, your guests and the community have a safer holiday.
DURING YOUR PARTY
The Baytown Fire Department discourages individual use of fireworks, however if your Independence Day celebrations include fireworks, the Baytown Fire Department encourages you to stay safe and follow the law.
“Discharge of fireworks within the city limits of Baytown, or within 1,000 feet of the city limits, is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $2, 000,” said Baytown Fire Chief Shon Blake. “Fireworks stands are located outside the enforcement zone, so any use of fireworks should take place even farther out.”
City offices, including those at City Hall, Public Works, the Health Department, Municipal Court and Utility Billing, will be closed Friday, July 4, in observance to the 4th of July holiday. All offices will re-open for business at their regular time on Monday, July 7.
Reptiles are one of the most interesting and often misunderstood classifications of animals on Earth. Whether you love them or fear them; they’ve been a source of legend and fascination throughout history. Baytown Nature Center Naturalist, Crissy Butcher will host the July Nurture Nature Series, July 5, at 10 am, with a fascinating discussion of these ancient creatures.
Anyone familiar with Baytown will tell you that the City’s Parks and Recreation Department can always be counted on for an amazing 4th of July Celebration. It’s so great, in fact, that it takes two days to get it all in. That’s right; Baytown makes Independence Day plural with festivities taking place at Bicentennial Park (1001 Market St.) on both July 3 and 4.
Nothing evokes images of festive patriotism like a 4th of July parade. The Baytown Parks and Recreation Department wants your group, church, or organization to join them in the City’s annual 4th of July Parade. Entries for the patriotic parade are now being accepted.
