4th of july Jubilee
a shortened day
Mother Nature had a mind of her own July 4. While the day was shortened, the parade fun and contests were fun! For photos from the 2018 event, please select HERE.
Schertz is proud to host the 4th of July Jubilee, one of South Texas' largest tributes to freedom and the men & women who serve in the armed forces!
Complete with live musical entertainment, a downtown parade, 'Let Freedom Run' 5K, kid's carnival, hand-made crafts, and festival food, Jubilee offers something for the whole family.
And what would the Fourth of July be without the rockets red glare? Schertz is proud to be the home of the only annual Star Spangled Spectacular...the perfect way to end a celebration.
