[ARCHIVED] City of La Marque non-emergency offices closed Wednesday, July 4, 2018

4th of July

Happy 4th of July from City of La Marque

City of La Marque non-emergency offices will be closed Wednesday, July 4, 2018, in observance of Independence Day. 


The Fourth of July – also known as Independence Day or July 4th – has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1941, but the tradition of Independence Day celebrations goes back to the 18th century and the American Revolution. On July 2nd, 1776, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later delegates from the 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson. From 1776 to the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence, with festivities ranging from fireworks, parades and concerts to more casual family gatherings and barbecues.


Did you know New York City has the biggest fireworks display in the United States and that three U.S. presidents died on July 4?
