Every year we pile the kids into the truck and head out to see some fireworks. There are a few shows we can catch just by  planting ourselves at the lake and watching from afar. There are a few we have been going to for several years and others we have never seen. Where ever we end up the kids always enjoy themselves and the fireworks display is absolutely amazing.

Free Firework Shows in North Dallas

So, after a day of celebrating the independence given to us here in America… and eating hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill… we enjoy wrapping up the day with a large fireworks display. There are many free fireworks shows in North Dallas to watch. And although most are on the 4th, a few cities hold their event on the 3rd so you have to be sure to check the dates. Therefore, here is a list of some of our favorites, as well as few other free events I was able to find:

July 3rd

  • Kaboom Town! at Addison Addison Circle Park. Free. Live music and vintage plane fly-bys. The air show always draws in an early crowd and is very entertaining to watch. The fireworks are choreographed to music that is then simulcast through the radio.
  • Farmers Branch Independence Day Celebration at FB Historical Park. Free. 7:30pm until 10pm.

July 4th
