For nearly four decades, one of the nation’s most impressive and unique Independence Day celebrations has been held in the North Texas town of Addison. While 4.4 square-mile Addison is only home to 16,000 residents, more than a half-million guests from across the nation come to celebrate Addison Kaboom Town! each 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 fireworks, presented by Luzianne Tea, and the incredible Addison Airport Airshow can be seen from anywhere in town.
Families viewing the fireworks from Addison Circle Park will enjoy cooling off at the Guidepost Montessori Kaboom Lagoon, a free fun zone featuring water attractions and more.
The Addison Kaboom Town! 25-minute-long fireworks show is among the best in the nation, and is radio simulcast on Star 102.1 FM. Before the fireworks, there’ll be high-energy music at Addison Circle Park from the Razzmajazz Dixie Jazz Band, the ensemble bands of the 36th Infantry Division and Texas’ most popular party band, Emerald City, who will also perform after the fireworks.
Each year, Addison Kaboom Town! is named among the top fireworks shows in the country. The spectacular 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.
