If you’re missing the summer fireworks then here’s your chance to soon watch a “dazzling” display by the beach.

South Padre Island’s Entertainment District will be hosting a fireworks show on Sunday, Sept. 3 in celebration of Labor Day weekend.

The firework display will kick off at 9:15 p.m.

For Blake Henry, South Padre Island CVB executive director, the Labor Day fireworks give families the opportunity to end their summer fun with a colorful and glittery display that lights up the night sky.

“With the holiday often considered to mark the end of summer, we’re here to help you end it with a bang and celebrate the three-day weekend with non-stop fun under our island sun,” Henry said in a news release.

Residents can view the firework display from various points along the bay as well as waterfront restaurants or even the comfort of their own boats.
