Local businesses to celebrate Independence Day all weekend

WACO, Texas (KWTX) Local businesses in downtown Waco kicked off their Independence Day celebration with a Sip and Shop event on Thursday from noon to 6 p.m.

Customers were able to enjoy alcoholic beverages while exploring White Elephant, Christi’s, Cactus Rose and Titch and Burts.

The owner of White Elephant Mike Brock says this is their way to give back to the community this Fourth of July.

In addition, to Sip and Shop they will also be hosting artist workshops on Friday and a Kid and Dog crawl on Saturday where children can make crafts at the stores.

“The one thing we wanted to do was give back to the community by doing this Fourth of July for this Austin Avenue Design Celebration and this was the perfect way to do it,” Brock said.

All the events are free and are from noon to six.
