4th of July Fireworks Are Popping Off In These Texas Cities.

Celebrate America’s Independence Day with 4th of July fireworks in these Texas cities. The sky is lit with red, white, and blue fireworks at night, and vibrant music, food, and fun beckon during the day to celebrate. From the bustling cities to the serene lakeside towns, here are some of the best fireworks shows in the Lone Star State.

Dallas-FT Worth Metroplex

In North Texas, the Dallas-Fort Worth area is known for its grand Independence Day celebrations. Addison’s Kaboom Town, a staple since 1985, features a dazzling display synchronized to music, drawing crowds from all over for the on-average 25-minute fireworks display, after-party, and daytime airshow. The town-wide event is celebrating its 40th year and is one of the most anticipated 4th of July fireworks celebrations. Celebration is July 3, 2024.

If you’ve been to Fort Worth, you are familiar with the Stockyards, but you must visit for America’s holiday! Fort Worth’s Fourth at Panther Island Pavilion offers a family-friendly environment with activities such as tubing and live music, culminating in a grand fireworks display over the Trinity River. Gates open at 5:00 p.m. on July 4th.

Meanwhile, in Dallas, historic Fair Park (home of the Texas State Fair) is home to the Fair Park Fourth. The party starts at 4:30 p.m. Food vendors, entertainment, live music, and an impressive show will be a blast on July 4th. 


The Star Spangled Fest features a live performance with Austin’s H-E-B Austin Symphony during a stunning fireworks display over Lady Bird Lake on July 4th. Gates open at 4:00 p.m. For a more laid-back atmosphere, head to the Hill Country Galleria Independence Day Festival, which combines local shopping, live music, and a spectacular fireworks show.


Houston’s Freedom Over Texas, known for its Texas-sized fireworks, is a large-scale celebration held at Eleanor Tinsley Park along Buffalo Bayou. The July 4, 2024 event features live performances from headliner Russell Dickinson, and special guest Jo Dee Messina, among others. Freedom Over Texas will feature a unique non-profit component that joins forces with the Houston Food Bank to help fill an extraordinary demand in our regional community.
