The Dallas-Fort Worth area is celebrating the Fourth of July in style this year with a few different celebrations across the metroplex. There's a little something for everyone, so go out and have a great and safe time!
Willie Nelson's 4th of July Picnic
This is the annual all-day music festival bash that takes place in the historic Fort Worth Stockyards. The line-up features Dierks Bentley, Josh Abbott Band, and many other country artists. Kids under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
Fort Worth's Fourth
This family-friendly 4th of July celebration is at the Panther Island Pavilion in Fort Worth. Face painting, ziplining, bounce houses, and many other activities will be available for the kids. Parents can enjoy the live music and fireworks with the whole family. This year there will be jet ski and flyboard shows for even more entertainment.
Fair Park Fourth
For all the Dallas people out there, this event is for you. The Cotton Bowl Stadium will be open so you can get the best seat in town for fireworks! There will also be carnival games, reduced entry to Fair Park museum, and a patriotic performance by the Dallas Wind Symphony.
City of Bedford 4thFEST
What's better on a summer night than great food, swimming, and fireworks? Bedford's 4thFEST has all of that and more. Don't forget about the classic car show and other family activities for everyone to take part in.
