Summer 2014 marches along and the heat is turning up a few degrees each day. This can only mean it is time to celebrate our nation’s birth with family picnics and outings. One of the biggest celebrations in the North Texas area is Addison’s Kaboom Town this July 3rd. This is one of the country’s best fireworks displays, and the crowd swells even larger as the years go on. The City of Addison has new policies in place to alleviate some of the traffic and over-crowding by offering a limited supply of tickets to anyone who cares to join the fun on the grounds within the barricade where food, drinks and music will be offered. You may grab your free tickets at their website.
For the rest of humanity, the many restaurants that measure across Belt Line in Addison will offer their own special parties and prime seating. You will want to scope out those restaurants for reservations individually. One of the best seats can be found at Chamberlain’s Fish Market. Call them for more information at 972.503.3474. Chef Chamberlain always has a party planned, and a special 3-course dinner.
This year more restaurants and pubs will be stepping up their activities to entertain you and your guests. Parking is always a premium, so you will want to arrive early. There are plenty of activities happening including one amazing air show to entertain the crowds that arrive before the fireworks.
For those who are planning on roughing it, the streets of Belt Line (aside from the restaurants) have choice sideline seating, but this can prove precarious at best.
CraveDFW has secured special VIP media passes for a four of our guests. These passes include dinner and adult beverages at no cost. We will split the passes up into two pair for a fun contest. The winners will also receive a gift card for dinner at Cantina Laredo. Kaboom Town passes are extremely limited and coveted. You and a guest will have the very best view of the display, and will hobnob with the rest of the VIP characters.
To win one of the two packages (and we may heap more prizes onto the bonfire of fun as we go) merely make a comment below. Something patriotic would be ideal, but a mere “Yo” is acceptable. Our winners will be chosen at random, so no need to offer special bribes (although they are fun to read).
We will choose the special winners on June 24th. Kaboom Town is always held July 3rd which falls on a Thursday this year. Good luck, and God bless ‘Merica, ya’ll!
