This event has already happened

In 1997, the Texas State Legislature designated Waxahachie as the Crape Myrtle Capital of Texas. Each summer, the city’s historic streets are lined with hundreds of beautiful crape myrtles in full bloom. The Crape Myrtle Festival is a patriotic celebration that kicks off on July 3 with down home fun including tailgating, food trucks, a children's area, a DJ and music by Memphis Soul, and the HEB fireworks show.

On July 4, the annual parade honoring our veterans begins at 10 a.m. in historic downtown Waxahachie. A picnic in Getzendaner Park follows.
