(141) 4th of July Celebrations in Stone Oak & North San Antonio – NO FIREWORKS!

July 2, 2011

4th of July Fireworks Shows can usually be found at Independence Day Celebrations all around San Antonio…Seaworld, Fiesta Texas, Lackland Air Force Base, Woodlawn Lake and at The Club at Sonterra / Cornerstone Church in Stone Oak & North San Antonio …Well, Not This Year!

Due to extreme drought conditions, ALL fireworks displays are banned in Bexar County. That includes all public displays, including city-sponsored events at parks and at military installations in town.

“This ban on public displays was deemed the safest course of action to protect the lives and property of San Antonio’s citizens,” reads the SAFD advisory.  “As a reminder, the personal use of fireworks within the city limits is illegal.”

Even though the fireworks are also cancelled, you will still find big celebrations being held at SeaWorld, Lackland Air Force Base and Woodlawn Lake Park

In Stone Oak & North San Antonio you will still be able to enjoy the annual Forth of July celebration at The Club at Sonterra and Cornerstone Church…just sans the fireworks display.

 The Club at Sonterra will still host a resident pool party on July 4, with a cookout from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m and lots of other fun stuff…like  a cotton candy machine, snow cones, music, games & even a bounce house!  Cost is $10.95 for adults and $8.95 for children.

The Independence Day festivities at Cornerstone Church will begin at 5 p.m. on Monday July 4th.

Have a happy and safe July 4th.  Fly your flag and please remember all those who have served and do serve to ensure our independence.

Martial Arts can definitely be a fun activity…But it is also a great tool for learning self defense & for getting in shape!  At Champion Martial Arts, “Students not only learn self-defense, but also learn respect, discipline, confidence, focus, and many other important life skills.”


Champion Martial Arts accomplishes this by teaching  many different styles of martial arts, so that their students can get very balanced lessons & so that they can learn multiple skills. 

Their main style is Taekwondo…However, they also other styles such as Muay Thai, Submission Grappling, Karate, MMA, and Weapons Training.  Plus, they also offer Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu!

“Champion Martial Arts firmly believes that the best way to learn and grow is in a fun and enjoyable environment.  Three things will happen every class, students will learn, sweat, and have fun.  Perhaps the most important thing about Champion Martial Arts is their Champion Life Skills.”
