About 2,000 people enjoyed pony rides, mechanical bulls, dancing to the upbeat tunes of a DJ, lots of delicious food, and of course, a spectacular fireworks display at  Missouri City’s 28th annual 4th of July Celebration.

An estimated 3,000 more enjoyed the fireworks show from their cars and trucks that were parked bumper-to-bumper along Buffalo Run Boulevard and Texas Parkway.

The Parks & Recreation Department also gave out more than 600 cowboy hats to children 12 and under.
