Fireworks in Kyle to celebrate Independence Day

By Sahar Chmais 

Kyle’s Independence Day celebration will return this year with a little surprise in the show and with looser regulations than last year. 

In 2020, residents were asked to watch the show from their little spots marked by orange cones which distanced groups. This year, there will not be any regulations in regards to COVID-19. Although, one tradition carried over from last year — the music.

KAZI 88.7 will once again stream music to go along with the fireworks and celebration. 

Fireworks will be launched from the Plum Creek Golf Course (PCGC) at sundown, about 9 p.m. on Sunday July 4, but residents cannot watch from the course. Residents can watch the show from the Hays CISD Performing Arts Center, 979 Kohlers Crossing and on paved lots around the intersection of Kohlers and Kyle Parkway for safest viewing locations. 

The city asks pet owners to protect animals by keeping them home, inside and away from the fireworks and their loud noises. Kyle is also reminding residents that it is unlawful to sell, use or discharge fireworks within the city, except under special permits authorized by the city or in the fire code adopted by the city. 

Any person violating the ordinance may be charged with a class C misdemeanor and can be fined up to $2,000.
