Celebrate the 4th AND a long weekend!

4th of July AbendkonzertThe 4th of July falls on a Tuesday this year, so many of us will be celebrating over a long weekend. This is your invitation to party with us here in Boerne. Everyone celebrates a little differently, so we have you covered! Enjoy multiple birthday parties for America with fireworks and live music, or enjoy family time playing at the lake or tubing down the Guadalupe River. Toast to our great country on a wine or brewery tour, or if history is more your flavor, explore the Hill Country Mile with a Historic Walking Tour to learn a bit more about our community when it was in its infancy.
