Fort Worth’s night sky will be lit up on the Fourth of July with several fireworks displays going on throughout the city. There are several venues in Fort Worth offering spectacular fireworks displays for you and your family to enjoy.
Panther Island Pavilion
Panther Island Pavilion presents Fort Worth’s Fourth, a free family friendly festival that ends in one of the largest fireworks display in North Texas. Gates open at 2PM and you will find Jet Ski and Flyboard shows, performances from the Dallas Cowboy’s Rhythm and Blues Dancers and several live music performances. The festival is free however, if you would like access to shaded seating, craft cocktails and entry into VIP tents you can purchase a VIP Pass for $25.
Kids can participate in the free activities at the Kid Zone which include pony rides, face painting, zip lines, quad jump, water slides and bounce houses. If you’re looking to cool off they are also offering free tubes and life jackets (on a first come, first served basis) so that you can take a refreshing float in the Trinity.
Panther Island Pavilion has lined up plenty of food and drink vendors since they don’t allow outside coolers into the festival. The eclectic mix of vendors should please just about anyone with options like street tacos, pizza, Cajun, tamales, corndogs and hamburgers.
The fireworks show begins at 10PM and blankets and lawn chairs are welcomed into the festival.
Concerts in the Garden
Concerts in the Garden presents three days of fireworks beginning Wednesday July 2 and ending Friday July 4. The Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra will play rousing patriotic music to go along with the stunning fireworks display. The Old Fashioned Fireworks Picnic has become a tradition for many in Fort Worth and you can choose between lawn and table seating options with prices ranging from $21 - $46 (children under 12 free).
