On July 4, the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum will host the College Station Noon Lions Club’s “I Love America” Fourth of July Celebration at the George Bush Library Center at Texas A&M University.

The College Station Noon Lions Club has organized the event for more than 50 years, growing from humble beginnings to now one of the largest Independence Day celebrations in the Brazos Valley.

The museum will be open from 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. with free admission for everyone all day. Concessions begin at 5:30 p.m. and live music entertainment at 6 p.m. The Kids’ Zone, complete with games and bounce houses for children, will be open from 6 – 8:30 p.m. The evening will culminate with a performance by the Brazos Valley Symphony Orchestra at 8:45 p.m. and a fireworks show at 9:30 p.m.

Free parking is available at Fan Field, the gravel parking lot on Research Parkway on the Texas A&M University campus. There will be no shuttles from West Campus Garage or Reed Arena. Barbara Bush Drive will close at 4 p.m.; all event attendees must enter through Discovery Drive or John Kimbrough Parkway. Handicapped parking is available in Lot 41.

Attendees are asked to enter via University Drive and Research Parkway, arrive early and bring lawn chairs, picnic baskets and blankets. Pets and glass containers are not permitted.

The mission of the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum is to preserve and make available the records and artifacts of George H.W. Bush, 41st President of the United States. We promote civic literacy and increased historical understanding of our national experience, and foster a community of public service and volunteerism. For more information visit
