The City of Waco's annual Fourth on the Brazos celebration, featuring fireworks, food and music, will again take center stage on the Baylor campus on Tuesday, July 4 at Touchdown Alley, just outside McLane Stadium. The event will host a music concert featuring funky classics from The Family Stone, food trucks and family fun activities leading up to the fireworks extravaganza.

Fourth on the Brazos is a free event that always enjoys large crowds, so plan ahead to make the most of your evening. Official transportation options and parking lots across campus will be available; learn more below and from the City of Waco's Fourth on the Brazos website.

Happy Fourth of July from Baylor University!
