HOUSTON – Crews were hard at work putting together Houston’s Fourth of July show at Eleanor Tinsley Park near downtown Houston.

Lead rigger Travis Spears has been making last minute adjustments to the Freedom Stage. Artists Sheryl Crow and Martina McBride will perform on the stage.

“I am hooking up the guy wires to keep the roof stable so it doesn't blow around in the wind,” Spears said.

A group of architects were asked by the mayor to make a sculpture out of 130 tons of sand.

“Iconic images of US buildings and this side is Houston and the star in the middle is for the lone star state,” said Ann Kifer.

Tens of thousands will gather in the park for the festival.

Freedom over Texas begins promptly at 4 p.m.
