Celebrate Independence Day with Style in Midland

Celebrate Independence Day with Style in Midland

The 4th of July is synonymous with celebrating our nation's independence. Texas and the rest of the United States have been celebrating Independence Day since its designation as a federal holiday in 1870. Festivals, community gatherings, and fireworks have become a staple of America during this patriotic time of year.

2018 Star-Spangled Salute

This Independence Day, don't miss out on the city of Midland’s 2018 Star-Spangled Salute taking place at Hogan Park! This all-day festival is the definition of patriotism and community devotion that is so strong in Midland.

Held annually for the last 56 years, the celebrations start off with the Children's Sidewalk Parade at 10 am. Feel free to decorate wagons, tricycles, strollers, and bicycles with a patriotic theme to celebrate the history and fun of this event!

Fun Zone

The most exciting part for some is the Fun Zone! Filled with games and activities such as bounce houses, a rock climbing wall, bungee jumping, a 9-hole miniature golf course, and much more! This section is carefully designed to ensure everyone has an amazing time at the festival!

The Fun Zone is open for business from 7 pm until 9 pm!

Music and Food

Beginning at 7 pm, a free concert specifically designed for this event will be held. Rather than having one headlining event, there will be several performers presented for your musical pleasure. All effort has been made to ensure that there is something for everyone to enjoy!

Throughout the day there will be a variety of food carts and vendors set up around the festival grounds from 9 am – 11 pm to ensure your stomach doesn’t go hungry and you have the energy to participate in all the festivities!

The Beer Garden will be available for patrons over the age of 21, beginning at 4 pm. After showing your ID, you will receive a wristband that allows adult beverages to be purchased and consumed throughout the designated area. The last call will be at 9:30 pm, with sales concluding at 10 pm.


Lastly, but certainly not least is the event that everyone will be waiting for and has become a symbol of American pride - fireworks! The fireworks show will begin at approximately 10 pm and fills the West Texas sky with spectacular sights for about 20 minutes. Make sure to arrive early to find the ideal spot with the best view of this magnificent finale!

These are only a few of the fantastic community events that take place throughout the year in Midland. If you are searching for a new community, please contact us at Olympus Sundance Creek to learn more about current availability and to schedule a private in-depth tour of our grounds.
