You've probably heard quite a bit about this nationally-recognized firework display. People have been attending Kaboom Town for generations, which makes it an important holiday tradition for many.
However, if you've never watched fireworks at Addison Circle Park on Independence Day, there are a few things you should know before you head to the celebratory event.
1. It's the largest firework show in the area on multiple levels.
More than 400,000 visitors attend this Fourth of July event, so if you're looking for something low-key, this isn't the right show for you. The event coordinators use over 1,500 pounds of fireworks to light up the night sky, making it the largest fireworks display in the entire Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. There is also an air show that's sponsored by the Cavanaugh Flight Museum.
2. You can see the fireworks from pretty much anywhere in Addison.
Claiming a spot at Addison Circle Park isn't always necessary, although it does offer prime viewing opportunities. You can watch the large nighttime display from various places across the entire city, so if crowds and heat aren't your favorite things, consider looking into other popular viewing areas that might be easier to access.
3. The event can cause traffic delays. As you approach the event entrance at the corner of Quorum Drive and Addison Circle Drive, you should probably expect some road closures and setbacks. The sheer number of attendees at the event make commuting to the show a bit crazy. However, there are several places where you can park for free, so you should be able to snag a spot. You can also take a Lyft or an Uber to the show if you don't want to deal with the hassle of locating a parking space.
