For 40 years, one of the nation’s most impressive and unique Independence Day celebrations has been held in the North Texas town of Addison, Texas. While 4.4 square-mile Addison is only home to 17,000 residents, more than a half-million guests from across the nation come each year to celebrate Addison Kaboom Town!® on July 3.

 

The celebration is citywide, with watch parties at many of Addison’s 200+ restaurants (the Town has more restaurants per capita than any other city in the U.S.!), 22 hotels, and at a fantastic, limited-capacity party in the 12-acre Addison Circle Park. The world-renowned fireworks and the incredible Addison Airport Airshow can be seen from anywhere in town.

 

 

 

The Addison Kaboom Town! ® 25-minute-long fireworks show is among the best in the nation, and it is simulcast on both Star 102.1 FM and on the town’s social media channels. Before the fireworks, there’ll be high-energy music at Addison Circle Park from one of the hottest country dance bands in Texas, Big City Outlaws and Texas’ most popular party band, Emerald City, who will also perform after the fireworks. Families viewing the fireworks from Addison Circle Park will enjoy festival food, beverages and a fun zone area for the kids!  

 

Tickets to the watch party in Addison Circle Park, $10 for ages 10 and older, $5 for kids 2-9 and free for kids 2 and younger, will be available at addisonkaboomtown.com on June 5. Tickets are required for every guest attending.

 

Each year, Addison Kaboom Town!®  is named among the top fireworks shows in the country. The spectacular, 4,000-shell show has been ranked as one of the top fireworks displays in the country by People.com, the American Pyrotechnics Association, Yahoo, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal and Travel + Leisure Magazine.
