Join us for the 168th Round Top Fourth of July!
The Round Top community has celebrated the Fourth of July every year since 1851.
In fact, it's known as the longest running Fourth of July celebration west of the Mississippi.
The rest of the year, Round Top boasts an impressive population of 91 souls, many of German
and Czech origin.
But on the Fourth of July, our neighbors from Houston, Austin, San Antonio and everywhere in between
travel into Round Top for a taste of an old-time, small-town Fourth.
The civil war-era cannon roars at 10:30, announcing...
this year's celebration can be found here.
The parade route makes its way throughout the streets of Round Top,
allowing lots of opportunities for viewing. Click here for
a map of the parade route.

Congratulations to Clayton Weishuhn, the 145th Schützenkönig!
Clayton held off fierce competition in the first two rounds from 30 other Rifle Association members.
In the final round, he captured the crown with a near-perfect score of 35 out of 36. As
tradition holds, Clayton is shown here with his crown of cedar.
He's being lifted high, three times, by his father, Dave and brother, Cullen.
Clayton continues the
tradition of shooting crowns in his family. His father, Dave Weishuhn,
captured the Schützenkönig crown in 1994 and again in 2006.
