Monday, July 4, 2017, Round Top
The Round Top community has celebrated the Fourth of July every year since 1851. In fact, it’s known as the longest running Fourth of July celebration west of the Mississippi. On the Fourth of July, neighbors from Houston, Austin, San Antonio and everywhere in between travel into Round Top for a taste of an old-time, small-town Fourth.
The civil war-era cannon roars at 10:30 AM announcing the start of the parade. The parade circles the Round Top square serenaded by Round Top’s own Brass Band. After the parade, there will be a lunch of brisket, pork, sausage, German style potatoes, green beans, fixin’s and dessert available at the historic Round Top Rifle Hall. The afternoon is filled with music, a raffle, and games for the kids until 4 PM when the local band sets up for the afternoon dance.
