And the best thing is the whole event will be free.
All except the cold drinks, that is. And the proceeds of the drink sales will go to a worthy cause, the athletic department of Coastal Bend College.
Bill Hooten, one of the organizers, said the fireworks will be provided courtesy of Angel Care Ambulance Service and free hot dogs will be provided by Legacy Home Health until they are all gone.
“It’s all free,” Hooten said. “When we say free, we mean free.”
There will be no charge for parking and no charge for admission.
“Everything is free except the drinks,” Hooten said.
The gates will open at 5 p.m. and at 5:30 the entertainment will start.
Fiesta Ballet Folklorico will start dancing at 5:30 and Luna y Sol mariachis of Beeville also will start playing then.
At 6 p.m. the band Latin Attitudes will start playing and then Indomable will follow them.
At 9 p.m. the fireworks are scheduled to start and the celebration will end at 10 p.m. so everyone can get home in time to get a good night’s rest so they can be at work Tuesday.
Sponsors for the event will include the City of Beeville, Bee County, Dave Moore Ford, Paul Baca State Farm Insurance, the Bee County Chamber of Commerce, Affordable Insurance, Beeville Main Street and Rice Plumbing.
“Working together for a better Beeville,” Hooten said.
