Celebrate Independence Day the Wells Branch Way at 4th Fest!
4th Fest is brought to you by the WB MUD Recreation Department—Thank you!
Roll out the Red, White & Blue! If you haven’t decorated yet, you better get busy! Let’s show our Wells Branch Spirit. Meet in front of the community center at 9:30am. The parade takes off at 10am. If you’ve never been to one of our parades before, then you should probably know we have decorated bikes, wagons, trailers, DOGS, KIDS, hats, motorcycles and floats. It’s a grand event! If you wish to include a float in this year’s parade, please contact the WB MUD Program & Events Coordinator at 512-251-9814.

Throughout the day, concessions will be available from local restaurants and community service groups offering a variety of items to enjoy. Celebrating their 25th consecutive year at 4th Fest, Branch BBQ will be on hand with their fabulous chopped beef sandwiches. Malone Coffee will be back again this year serving coffee, pastries and iced coffee drinks. Stop by the WBNA Silent Auction inside the Community Center for FREE COOKIES (including GF and Keto varieties, while supplies last) graciously donated by Dream Bakery. And for the grown-ups, beginning at 11am, the WBNA will be serving FREE BEER (limit 2) inside the CC as well.
The Silent Auction benefits the WBNA. Money raised from this event funds the Easter Egg Hunt, National Night Out, our participation in Halloween Trunk or Treat, crafts at Luminary Fest and all of the educational and safety seminars we put on throughout the year. Come check out all the wonderful gift baskets and gift certificates donated by WB friends, neighbors and businesses and start placing your bids as soon as the parade returns. Contact Debby Thompson at 512-656-0654 or SilentAuction@wbna.us if you have an item or service you’d like to donate or if you’d like to volunteer. We can ALWAYS use a hand!
Come show your spirit, and remember,
YOU are what makes Wells Branch GREAT!
As the afternoon winds down, we hope you’ll join us as WB Celebrates Independence Day with a fireworks show to remember. Please see below for parking and viewing areas.
Fireworks Location Reminder – Brought to you by the WB MUD Recreation Dept.
WB MUD will launch the July 4th fireworks display from the soccer field/detention pond on Shoreline Drive between the Rec. Center and Fire Station. Please refer to the map below for designated seating areas. We suggest being in your seats by 9pm, as the fireworks begin at dark (around 9:30pm).
Although parking is available along the street and in the Willow Bend Pool parking lot, the number of spaces are limited, so we encourage all that can, to walk or ride bikes. Please come early, bring your blankets, chairs, coolers and bug spray.
Don’t forget to clear your area and pick up your trash when you leave. Thank you!
