Celebrating the 4th of July in Dallas? Here’s what to do:
There are so many events and things to do for Thursday the 4th of July and the rest of the long weekend all over the Dallas metroplex, from Collin County to Denton County to Dallas and everywhere in between. The Big D is a great big place and there will be a lot of places to celebrate.
Here’s your guide to make it the best 4th of July for you and your family.
Saturday, June 29th:
There’s not always a lot to say on Allen . . take Google’s word for it not mine. But this, this damn event, is the BEST. And this gives Allen some major street cred.
One of the events we attend every year, we think its one of the best and super close to home.
Centered around the theme of being “First to the Fourth,” Market Street Allen USA serves as the community’s Fourth of July celebration, uniquely held the last Saturday of June every year, happening this year at 4 p.m. June 29, 2019 at Celebration Park in Allen, TX. (FREE to attend.)
Being the last Saturday in June allows this city event to be a standout among area cities’ celebrations and promotes attendance locally, regionally and statewide.
Sunday, June 30th:
Stars and Stripes at St. Andrew United Methodist Church from 4:00 – 5:00 pm
Wednesday, July 3rd:
Sachse’s Annual Red, White & Blue Blast will be Wednesday, July 3rd, at Heritage Park (4408 Hudson Dr., Sachse, TX) at 6 PM. There will be live entertainment, activities, food, vendors, bounce houses, contests, and of course, fireworks. Bring your lawn chairs, blankets, and bug spray 😀
Red, White & Lewisville: Wayne Ferguson Plaza at 7:00 pm
Addison Kaboom Town. For more than three decades, Addison Kaboom Town!® has been named among the top fireworks shows in the country. Plan ahead, get there early, be safe! Its a phenomenal event!!
