Houston named No. 1 place for July 4th festivals, performances

Houston also ranked high in affordability


HOUSTON – Houston is the No. 1 big city in the U.S. for number of Fourth of July festivals and performances, so says a WalletHub report.

The personal finance website put together a list of the best and cheapest places to celebrate Independence Day following a projection from the National Retail Federation that American households will spend a collective $7.15 billion on Fourth of July food alone.

WalletHub compared the 100 largest U.S. cities based on how well they balance holiday cost and fun.

Not only did Houston rank No. 1 in the festivals and performances category, the city got one of the highest rankings in affordability, too.

With the billions of dollars that Americans will be spending, it's nice to know Houstonians will only be making a small dent in that number.
