Brazoria’s Celebrate America Lives On

The community is grateful for the 25 years of the Brazoria First Assembly church and Pastor Dale Frankum’s July 4 presentation of Celebrate America, and delighted that the Brazoria Lions Club has taken over the reins of the 2019 event.

Over the years, Celebrate America and the largest fireworks display in the county had become Brazoria’s well-received calling card drawing people from miles around. Losing this event, would be catastrophic. But the coordination and expense to produce this event is overwhelming at best.

Celebrate America will again fill the skies with fireworks and the hearts of the community with pride on July 6, 2019. The Brazoria Lions Club was looking for another community project and unanimously voted to continue staging this well-loved event. Celebrate America will utilize Barrow Elementary’ s grounds as in the past, continuing this prominent project.

The Brazoria Lions Club is working with sponsors to help defray the cost so that the event can continue with the success it has had in past years. Celebrate America will continue to be offered to the public for no charge.

Sponsors are needed to help underwrite this endeavor and are currently being solicited. For more information or to help sponsor the event contact:
