The year 2020 is looking extremely different from previous years. And this Fourth of July will be no exception. Thanks to the coronavirus and mandates for social distancing, the annual fireworks show and parade have been canceled.
But, that doesn’t mean celebrating America’s independence can’t be festive. The Galveston Park Board of Trustees in cooperation with the Downtown Partnership and the city of Galveston have joined forces to make Galveston a “Star Spangled Island” by investing in red, white and blue decorations to adorn the downtown historic district and on other main thoroughfares on the island. The endeavor is an investment in new decorations and an opportunity to repurpose others.
