Officials with the Texas A&M University System said Monday that a drive-in fireworks show at the RELLIS Campus will become an annual tradition after Saturday night’s successful first event.
Officials said in a statement that about 10,000 people watched the July 4 fireworks live from the campus parking lot, and hundreds of vehicles parked along Texas 47 and Texas 21 to watch.
The fireworks show was televised on KBTX-TV with synchronized music broadcast on radio station WTAW.
“After countless emails asking to do it again, it looks like we have started a new tradition,” Chancellor John Sharp said in the statement. “The biggest fireworks show in the Brazos Valley will just have to get bigger and better next year.”
