4th of July Fireworks!

Everyone looks forward to the Annual Wendell Family 4th of July Fireworks display that is shot off from the beach area over the water for all to enjoy! This event began back on July 4, 1965 when they shared a fireworks display with friends. It has grown into an amazing array of colors and patriotism, and even though Jerry and Jan Wendell have passed on, their family and friends wanted to be sure this happens every year for the people of Rockport. They formed a 501 C3 non-profit organization and the show continues to draw spectators and donors. The Wendell’s were great supporters of Sacred Heart Church and School, and we look forward to the amazing show at dusk each 4th of July.
