Bay City to mark July 4 with fireworks, music

   Bay City will celebrate Independence Day on beginning at 7 p.m. Sunday, July 4, with Matagorda County’s largest fireworks display and lots of music at Le Tulle Park. 
   “This year we are back at Le Tulle Park, 1135 S Texas 35, with a concert and a grand fireworks display,” said Kelly Penewitt, CPRE Parks and Recreation Department superviser. 
   Two Tons Of Steel is back to perform this year, she said.  
   Before there was Americana, before there was Texas Country, Two Tons of Steel rock a sound that blends the best of musical worlds and pushed the envelope of Texas sound with a signature brand of country meets punk, Penewitt said.  
   The San Antonio-based group packed the small bars and local hangouts and quickly became the Alamo City’s most-loved band, earning them a spot on the cover of Billboard Magazine in 1996.  
   It was the beginning of a 20-year journey the 4-piece ensemble. 
   The night ends with the largest fireworks display in Matagorda County at 9:30 p.m.
