Escape the grind and unwind. Grab your lawn chairs and blankets, family and friends, and come on out and have some fun at the Born on the Bayou July Fourth celebration. Relax by the water that runs underneath the historic Bridge City swing bridge.

Enjoy live entertainment by the Wayne Dylan Band. Hamburgers, hot dogs, nachos, links, snow cones, ice cream and drinks will be available so you can stay out of the kitchen!

The event begins Friday evening at 5 p.m. A tribute to all U.S. Veterans by the Texas Military Honors Team will be at 7 p.m. Madison Juneau, of Bridge City, grand daughter of Alan and Debbie Johansson, will sing the Star Spangled Banner. A brilliant fireworks display will light up the sky at nightfall with amusement for all.

The Wayne Dylan Band brings a really cool country sound and that reminds you of Strait, Haggard and Jones. As a performer he reminds me of Garth. He has been on stage now for almost ten years, bringing smiles to the faces of country loving crowds. He’s  a Nashville artist with a Texas country attitude. So put your boots on for some slow dancing and two stepping to some great music.

The event is hosted by the Bridge City Historical Society and they are asking for sponsorships. If your business is interested in displaying an advertising banner, please contact Debbie Gregg at 409-988-1243 or Darrell Segura at 409-720-9999 for the banner to be picked up and displayed the day of the event. The historical society will be responsible for displaying the banner, taking it down after the event and returning it to the business owner. The one day sponsorship will cost $250 per display sign.

The event is free to the public, but donations to cover the cost of the fireworks are welcome.

Please, leave coolers, glass bottles and alcohol at home. But you might want to bring some skeeter spray.
