Islanders get ready to OOHH and AHH during the 2nd annual July 4th fireworks display
Get ready to oohh, aahh and celebrate our country's Independence, Island Style.
For the first year ever, a Fourth of July Fireworks display will be presented on North Padre Island. Thanks to generous donations and effort from North Padre Island Residents, this year's show is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
A Fourth of July Boat Parade through the surrounding canals at 7pm will precede the show.
The fireworks will launch around 9pm from the Padre Island Yacht Club at the end of Whitecap Drive and will be visible in the surrounding canal areas with a West facing view.

Beach Country Resort
Construction at the new Schlitterbahn Beach Country North Padre Island Resort and Water Park is well underway with a tentative opening date marked in Summer 2014.
This TEXAS sized 65-acre water park is located within a full service resort complete with lodging, golf, tennis restaurants, event facilities and more. It sounds like it will be just as fun for adults as it is for kids!
Slides, pools, rides, a surf rider machine and swim up bar are all in the plan. The park is also set up to be a "lineless" with a lazy river transportation system allowing park guests to float from one ride to another without leaving the comfort of their inner tube.
A proposed master plan to the surrounding area also includes a marina in Lake Padre and a Beach Walk / Island Village with retail shops, restaurants, entertainment options, hotels, condos and more. The entire project should take around 15-20 years to complete.
