Pack Your Picnic: Info on Tonight’s Fireworks Show
Thousands are expected to flock to Auditorium Shores for the Austin Symphony July 4th Concert and Fireworks.
The symphony will start its performance at 8:30 p.m. The fireworks show will run from 9:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.
If you’re planning to attend, leave behind all alcohol, glass and Styrofoam. Smoking is not allowed and neither is grilling – because of the number of people expected to be at Auditorium Shores.

Cesar Chavez will be closed from MoPac to Guadalupe starting at 3 this afternoon. And South 1st Street will be shut down from Cesar Chavez to Barton Springs Road starting at 9 p.m.
The city has put together a list of suggested parking places. The MetroRail will not be running but several Capital Metro bus routes serve Auditorium Shores including: 1L/1M, 3, 5, 7, 10, 20, 30, 338, and the Night Owls.
