In addition, complimentary shuttle buses will be available at Hometown Heroes Park starting at 5 p.m. and will transport riders to and from the Sportsplex.
July 4 Citizen Appreciation Day Relocated Indoors

The free event, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., will feature activities for the whole family and complimentary hot dogs served by League City Council and Parks Board members, the Mayor, and City staff. Free watermelon, popcorn, and cotton candy will also be available.
UPDATE: THE TEDDY BEAR PARADE HAS BEEN CANCELED DUE TO WEATHER. In addition, residents are encouraged to have their children or grandchildren decorate their bike, scooter, wagon or anything on wheels in red, white, and blue and take part in the annual Teddy Bear Parade. Rain or shine, the children’s parade will begin at 10:30 a.m. at the League City Historical Society, located at 210 North Kansas, and run along 2nd Avenue to League Park.
