There’s one thing that just about everyone loves to do in celebrating America’s birthday and that’s watch fireworks. North Texas residents have many options for catching DFW fireworks. In fact, they can even see a few as not all of them take place on Fourth of July.
One tip. The fireworks at most of these places can be viewed in nearby areas. This will help you avoid traffic and crowds.
Here’s where to watch fireworks in DFW and have a whiz bang of a fourth!
Addison Kaboom Town!

The festivities start at 4pm on July 3 as attendees can enjoy an air show, Dallas Wind Symphony, military band, fireworks, and an after party music.

The live simulcast for fireworks is on 100.3 Jack FM.
Fair Park Fourth
July 4 at Dallas Fair Park
Head to Dallas Fair Park to celebrate America all day and top it off with fireworks.
