When it comes to the Fourth of July, small-town, community celebrations are as American as you can get. Schertz, Texas never fails to provide its citizens with just the right amount of excitement, fun, and patriotism. Below you’ll find a guide to the events held during the Schertz Jubilee.
The carnival is a Schertz Jubilee tradition and is a must for kids and teens. Enjoy the ferris wheel, swings, roller coaster, games, prizes, and more! Tickets are $1 each, and most rides or games cost anywhere from 3-5 tickets. You also buy your food and beverages with tickets. Check out the funnel cakes, bloomin’ onions, hamburgers and hotdogs, frozen lemonade, snow cones, and (of course) beer booths. If it’s American and unhealthy, they’ve got it!
