The 2005 Patriotic
Festival was held at Fisherman’s Park on July 2, 2005. The Austin Symphonic Band
returned for another wonderful performance prior to and during the outstanding
fireworks display. Despite record heat, another large appreciative crowd
attended. The festival this year also included arts & crafts, live music,
lots of great food and games.
The final draft of the
Declaration of Independence was adopted July 4, 1776, and Independence Day has
been the chief American patriotic holiday ever since. The Patriotic Festival in
Bastrop is celebrated the first Saturday in July each year. Pictures of the
Fireworks Display follow with excerpts from the Declaration of Independence.
