PORT ARANSAS, Texas - Hurricane Alex made landfall in Mexico hundreds of miles from Mustang Island. High surf, winds and heavy rain have come and gone. The weather forecast calls for improving conditions through the weekend.
The July 4th Holiday is traditionally a big weekend on the island and this year promises to be no different. As an added bonus four tall ships will be coming through the jetties Saturday morning as they make their way to former Naval Station Ingleside. Details on the festivities can be found here.
At approximately "dark thirty" on Sunday night, the Annual Port Aransas Fireworks Display will take place over the harbor and ship channel. This is always a great show and people return year after year to enjoy the waterfront show.
Even though the hurricane passed well to our south, some travelers altered their plans. As a result, hotels and condos are reporting vacancies. This is a rare opportunity for last minute travel plans as we celebrate in Port Aransas.
