NEW BRAUNFELS – After a year-long hiatus due to the pandemic, the Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular is coming back to New Braunfels and city officials say this year will be bigger and better than ever.

The display will return to the skies over Landa Park with the “biggest fireworks display ever seen in New Braunfels,” at approximately 9:15 p.m., Sunday, July 4th, according to city officials.

“This year’s event will be the largest professional pyrotechnic display ever seen in the skies over New Braunfels thanks to a generous donation from Joy and Rocky Hill in honor of the 175th Anniversary of the founding of New Braunfels,” city officials said in a release.

The fireworks will be fired over Landa Lake and can be seen throughout Landa Park, the Landa Park Golf Course at Comal Springs, the Fredericksburg Baseball Fields and several other places in the city as well, including Fischer Park, city officials say.

Visitors are reminded that seating on the golf course will begin at 6 p.m., and the putting greens are off limits, according to city officials.

“We are so excited for the return of the Fireworks Spectacular to Landa Park,” said Stacey Dicke, parks and recreation director, in a statement. “And this year’s event will really be something special to behold! Thanks to the Hill’s generous contribution, this year’s show will feature essentially twice the pyrotechnic firepower from previous fireworks displays. And we may have a few other surprises in store for those in attendance on the 4th of July!”

The Landa Park Aquatic Complex, the mini golf course, paddle boats and the miniature train will be open through the 4th of July weekend as well. You can learn more about these attractions here.

Park visitors are also reminded that unless you have a permit, fireworks are not allowed in the city limits of New Braunfels, according to Police Chief Keith Lane.

“Remember that, without a permit, the possession or use of any kind of firework is illegal inside the city limits of New Braunfels,” said Lane in a release. “So, leave the fireworks to the professionals and enjoy the show in Landa Park.”

If you’re planning on attending the fireworks display, city officials say you should arrive early, expect large crowds and to also be mindful of park rules.

The fireworks will begin at 9:15 p.m., and you can tune in to the live broadcast of the event on KGNB 1420 AM.
