Where to Celebrate Independence Day

Where to Celebrate Independence Day

There are so many options for Independence Day celebrations in North Texas. If you’re like us and need to get the kids in bed before they turn into very cranky pumpkins, maybe one of the daytime festivals is best for you. But if your kids can handle partying past sunset, there are many high-powered fireworks shows to choose from as well. Take a look at the following links to find out which celebration is right for you this year.

I compiled this list from the Fox4 website. There are many other celebrations in other areas throughout DFW. I only listed ones I thought would most appeal to Frisco and surrounding area residents. Check out the full list here.

What did I miss? Are there any secret fireworks viewing areas that aren’t too crowded? Let me know!
