The Fourth of July starts early at Addison Kaboom Town!
The date on the Declaration of Independence says July 4, but Addison has always jumped the gun a bit. The town’s big Fourth of July celebration is routinely held on the Third of July, full of music, fireworks, food, an airshow and the promise of their biggest finale yet. It all starts at 4 p.m., and goes as late as midnight, so turn up for all the fun early and stay as late as you want. Best of all? General admission is free.
Addison Circle Park, 4970 Addison Circle Drive.
Gates at 4 p.m., fireworks at 9:30 p.m.
