The Ultimate Guide To Addison Kaboom Town! July 3rd *Contest*


They say everything is bigger and better in Texas, and never is that more true than when Addison, Texas hosts its legendary Addison Kaboom Town! fireworks display. While Addison is home to 19,000 residents, every July 3rd a half-million guests from across the nation come to celebrate America’s Independence in a style that is uniquely Addison. The celebration is city-wide, with a fantastic party in Addison Circle Park, watch parties at many of Addison’s 170+ restaurants and the incredible Addison Airport Air Show which can be seen from anywhere in town.  


The 30-minute long fireworks show is among the best in the nation, and is simulcast each year on 100.3 JACK- FM. Afterwards, while area traffic calms, attendees are invited to enjoy an after-party in Addison Circle Park featuring Emerald City on the Budweiser Stage.

Now celebrating its 30th anniversary, the event is a perennial part of every top national fireworks display list. The spectacular show was named the #3 fireworks display in the country by AOL, and is ranked as one of the top fireworks displays in the country by the American Pyrotechnics Association, USA Today, the Wall Street Journal and Travel + Leisure Magazine.

The event is  Friday, July 3, 2015, 5:00pm to  midnight. From 5:00 – 9:00pm enjoy live entertainment on the Budweiser Stage, games in Family Fun Zone, carnival and midway.  At 7:00pm catch the Addison Airport Airshow, and Fireworks go off at  9:30pm.  The After Party begins at 10:00pm on the Budweiser Stage.

Traffic Notes: The popularity of the Addison Kaboom Town! fireworks show may cause some traffic delays, specifically following the fireworks show. Book your hotel rooms now.  Addison hotels are quickly filling up for this annual event. Spectators are encouraged to spend the night in Addison at any of our hotels, stay in Addison Circle Park for the after party to avoid these delays, or remain at their favorite restaurant. Those who choose to leave immediately after the fireworks show should understand that it could take 2-plus hours to get to their intended destination in the DFW Metroplex, and they are encouraged to travel as directed for a few miles beyond Addison’s borders in order to travel in their desired direction.

Event Notes: Concessions are available in the park serving food and beverages. Guests are encouraged to leave coolers and bags at home to expedite entry into the park. Those choosing to bring coolers must limit the size to no larger than 16”x20”x12”. Absolutely no alcohol can be brought into or out of Addison Circle Park.
