Memorial Day Fireworks Planned on South Padre Island

South Padre Island, TX, May 12, 2020: South Padre Island will celebrate Memorial Day Weekend with a fireworks display on Sunday, May 24, 2020. Visible from all over the Island, the Island’s fireworks show has been the traditional kick-off of the summer travel season for Texas’ best beach. 

“We are excited to welcome everyone for a much needed long weekend on the Island,” said Ed Caum, executive director for the convention and visitors bureau. “There’s no better way to show our appreciation than with a rousing fireworks display in honor of Memorial Day.” The fireworks will be shot off from the entertainment district over Laguna Madre Bay. 

The fireworks will be synced to music on Classic 92.7 FM Radio. This will allow viewing of the fireworks and the musical accompaniment from southern Laguna Madre Bay. “Thanks to the participation of our broadcast partner we can offer island visitors and residents alike a great  view of the display and while maintaining social distancing,” said Caum. “Local establishments can also tune in and offer the accompanying music to their patrons.”

Great deals are available for lodging and excursions all over the Island for Memorial Day weekend and given the natural wide-open beaches and opportunities for outdoor activity, demand is expected to be strong. For more information on Memorial Day specials, visit
