WATCH: Patriots Celebrate Independence Day 2020 in Christoval
CHRISTOVAL, TX – Hundreds of patriots converged on the small town of Christoval in southern Tom Green County on July 4th, 2020 for the annual Independence Day celebration.
The annual event is a fundraiser for the Christoval Volunteer Fire Department and features a 5k and one mile fun run, 30 mile bike ride and two mile kayak ride.
Volunteers with the VFD also cook up a dandy bar-b-que meal with brisket, sausage, beans potato salad and dessert.

Participants in Christoval adhered to Gov. Abbott's executive orders as much as any patriot can while celebrating Independence Day.
The 5K and one mile runs wound through downtown Christoval and Pugh Park while the bike ride was an out and back course on Toenail Trail.
The Kayak adventure started at the causeway and went upstream one mile and back.
There was music planned for later in the evening and individuals were making preparations to celebrate using fireworks legally.
