For more than three 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 home to only 16,000 residents, more than a half-million guests from across the nation come to celebrate Addison Kaboom Town!® each July 3.
The Addison Kaboom Town! ® 25-minute-long fireworks show, presented by Luzianne Tea, is among the best in the nation, and the celebration is citywide, with watch parties at many of Addison’s 200+ restaurants and at a fantastic, limited-capacity party in the 12-acre Addison Circle Park. Entry to the party in Addison Circle Park is available only with a free ticket, which can be ordered online beginning Wednesday, June 21 at 10 a.m.
Once public park admission tickets are all claimed, booking a hotel package in one of Addison’s participating hotels is the only way to guarantee entry into the party in the park. Guests who book a hotel package will enjoy quality accommodations and receive a neck cooling towel and guaranteed admission to Addison Circle Park for up to six people through a designated park entrance fast lane.
