The Woodlands Kicks Off Fourth of July Celebrations with Free Entertainment

The Woodlands Waterway Square
The Woodlands July 4 Events

Despite the potential cancellation of its fireworks show, The Woodlands has created a number of different ways to celebrate America’s Independence over the Fourth of July holiday.

Live concerts, a parade, and splash days are part of the overall outstanding lineup of activities in The Woodlands this Fourth of July. Due to historic drought conditions in The Woodlands and Montgomery County, The Woodlands Township will make a final determination of its fireworks show on Monday, June 27, 2011.

“Certainly, the drought is unfortunate from many different aspects,” said Nick Wolda, President of The Woodlands Convention & Visitors Bureau. “But the number one priority at this time is safety. With thousands of acres burning in the near areas, we believe it is in best interest not to exacerbate the possibility of a fire and keep The Woodlands Fire Department on full alert protecting the community.”

The Woodlands Showcase Of Wine And Food

The Woodlands Wine Week

The Woodlands will transform into a foodie paradise for the 7th Annual Wine & Food Week. This year’s theme is Southern hospitality, and the event celebrates cuisine from the region and wines from around the world.

The week-long festival, which runs June 6-12, includes 40 events and features more than 500 wines, 50 restaurants, craft beers, wine producers and culinary figures. Organizers expect more that 10,000 people to attend.

The Food & Wine week also offer wine education classes, chef demonstrations, cookbook author events, live and silent auctions and casual to fine wine-and-dine experiences, including the Ladies of the Vine Luncheon, It’s a Guy Thing and the Capital One Bank Platinum Wine Vault tasting.

The first Wine & Food Week was held in 2005 and had more than 4,000 participants. Co-founders Clifton and Constance McDerby came up with the idea for the festival shortly after moving to Houston from New Orleans 12 years ago. Nostalgic for their favorite festival, the New Orleans Food and Wine Experience, they set out to create a similar event in their new city.
