Wow. I’m having a hard time believing that it is already summer, much less that July 4th is right around the corner! Our studio is closed on Monday, July 3rd and Tuesday the 4th, so we have a REALLY long weekend. As of now, I have no plans. So I thought I would share some of the events in and around Dallas with you as a I hunted for some ideas for myself and my husband.
If Ft. Worth is a little far for you to travel, the Starplex in Fair Park has the Outlaw Music Festival on July 2nd. Willie Nelson, Sheryl Crow and others will light up the night.
July 3rd hosts a great fireworks show in Addison at the legendary Kaboomtown. I’m a little prejudiced towards this because our studio has a front row seat to the program. This is some of the best fireworks in North Texas.
The Lakewood Parade is always a lot of fun. My in-laws live there and the kids always have a blast. It kicks off the morning of July 4 near the Lakewood Country Club.
Later in the day on the 4th of July, Fair Park lights it up (literally) with Fair Park Fourth that includes fireworks around 9:30.
And finally, the Frisco Freedom Fest has something for everybody. There is a 5K, a Taste of Frisco, an FC Dallas soccer match, and of course it ends with a gorgeous fireworks show.
Oh, and if you’re attending any of the outdoor events and are considering packing a meal, check out some of my picnic planning ideas.
So those are a few of the ideas we are tossing around for the weekend. I’m not sure where we will end up. But of course, I’ll get some time in our pool and a nap (or two) worked into the itinerary!
Be safe! Enjoy the holiday!
