If you’re looking for something fun to do with the whole family, why not come to the City of Beaumont’s annual Fourth of July Celebration? It’s the 33rd year in a row the Event Centre in Beaumont has brought this event to the city. While the fireworks will, of course, take center stage, there is plenty more for everyone to do for an evening of fun and festivities.

 

When and Where?

On July 4, the celebration starts at 5:00 PM at the Downtown Event Centre Lake. The Symphony of Southeast Texas will begin playing at 8:00 PM, followed by the fireworks show shortly after at 9:00 PM.

 

What Will Be There?

Besides fireworks, there will be tons of activities. Visitors will have access to local food trucks if they get hungry, live music performances, and a Budweiser beer garden. If you’re looking for kid-friendly fun, the Rotary Centennial Playground is also available for little ones to play on.

 

What Can I Bring?

As a free event, guests only need to bring enough money for food and beverages. Aside from that, you can bring blankets, lawn chairs, and coolers. No outside alcohol is permitted, but snacks and non-alcoholic drinks are.

Spring Clean Your Car At Sour Lake Chevrolet

Spring cleaning doesn’t just have to apply to just the house. You can extend that once-a-year TLC to your everyday items, like your car. We have some top tips for what you should do when you spring clean your car, so you can make it sparkle like new this spring.

Catch Up With Maintenance

This is one of the less fun parts of cleaning, but you’ll feel much better if your vehicle runs as well as it looks, so have our professionals here at Sour Lake Chevrolet catch it up to speed on routine maintenance.

Wash the Bottom

When you hose down your vehicle to rinse off all the extra dirt and grime, make sure you include the undercarriage. In many parts of the U.S., vehicles pick up road salt from the winter snow. Even here in Sour Lake, dust and dirt makes an impact on the underside of your car.

Wash Wheels and Windows Last

While you’re washing the rest of your vehicle, the grime will just run down onto windows and wheels, so it helps to wait to clean those at the end so you can make them really shine.

Finishing Touches

When the exterior is done, make sure you replace your wiper blades, deep-clean the interior (including the trunk), and wrap it up with a fresh coat of polymer-based wax for long-term protection.
