Fourth of July at Round Top

Wednesday, July 4, 2018, 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.

Visit their website @ Round Top Rifle Association.

Watch Out For Fraudulent Email

If you receive an email claiming to be from Colorado Valley Communications that is requesting your account name and password, you are likely the target of a scam. Colorado Valley Communications will never ask for personal information, like your password, over email. If you believe your Colorado Valley account has been compromised, change your password immediately.

When you receive an email that looks suspicious, here are a few things to check for:

  • Check that the email address and the sender name match
  • Hover over any links before you click on them. If the URL of the link doesn’t match the description of the link, it might be leading you to a phishing site.
  • Check the message header to make sure the “from” header isn’t showing an incorrect name.
