The 2023 Independence Day holiday got off to a booming start on Saturday with the Boomfest fireworks show, hosted by the Breckenridge Chamber of Commerce, Stowe’s Independent Services and Clear Fork Bank, as well as other sponsors. The patriotic celebrations will continue on Tuesday, July 4, with the seventh annual Salute in the Salt Flats Fireworks Show, which is being provided by the Rail A Ranch, Canyon Road Barn and Grill, and a lot of donors.

Tuesday’s show will be a benefit fundraiser for local Volunteer Fire Departments. The VFDs will be on scene to support the Rail A in their efforts. The show will be in the vicinity of Canyon Road, located at 5790 FM 3418, south of Breckenridge.

Canyon Road will open at 5 p.m. with a full menu. Shonda Wood will sing the National Anthem, and the fireworks show is expected to start around 9:30 p.m. The Davis Brothers Band will provide outdoor entertainment.

The fireworks show will be free for anyone to attend and watch. Donations to benefit the VFDs will be collected during the show. The donations will be donated to the Caddo VFD, Wayland VFD, Hubbard Creek VFD and Woodson VFD.

Saturday’s Boom fest was held at Hubbard Creek Reservoir and featured a variety of food trucks and other vendors. After a day of rain, the weather cleared up just in time for the fireworks show. The rain also cooled down the temperatures into the 70s, following a week of 100-plus degree days.

On Tuesday, July 4, the National Weather Service predicts a mostly sunny day with a high of 98 and a nighttime low of about 77. The winds are supposed to be low (10 mph).

After Independence Day, the temperatures are supposed to start heating up again, with Sunday’s high expected to be 104 degrees. There is a slight chance of showers or thunderstorms on Thursday, July 6, but most of the forecast is for sunny skies and hot temperatures for the next week.
