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.
