Red, Hot & Blue Festival and Fireworks Extravaganza 

The 2018 Red, Hot & Blue has been cancelled. Fireworks will continue in two launch locations.

Two fireworks locations are still scheduled to take place in The Woodlands on Wednesday, July 4, 2018. Fireworks from Lake Woodlands and at Rob Fleming Park in the Village of Creekside Park are scheduled to take place at 9:30 p.m. 

In light of unfavorable park conditions from today's rain event, the 21st Annual Red, Hot & Blue Festival has been cancelled at all locations which included Northshore Park, Hughes Landing, Town Green Park, Waterway Square and Rob Fleming Park. The Fireworks Extravaganza has been reduced to two launch locations due to recent heavy rainfall amounts that compromised the launch sites.

The Woodlands Township staff is working closely with its contracted fireworks vendor to ensure the main shows on Lake Woodlands and Rob Fleming Park are able to continue as scheduled at approximately 9:30 p.m.

Due to heavy rains and high lake levels, Northshore Park will be closed with access restricted for spectators. Please use the following locations for best fireworks viewing:

  • Lake Woodlands Bridge (Closed to vehicular traffic from 8 to 10:30 p.m.)
