AUSTIN (KXAN) — Even though the 38th Annual Austin Symphony H-E-B July 4th Concert and Fireworks show moved to the Circuit of the Americas track this year, people still came out in droves to enjoy the show.

We asked folks about the new venue and what they hoped for tonight.

“It’s fantastic,” said  Dale Reynolds. “I’ve been out for races and it’ll be interesting to see fireworks from this location.”

CoTA said approximately 25,000 people came for the free show.

The fireworks started promptly at 9:30 p.m. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
