Five Local Firework Displays to Celebrate July Fourth

Every Fourth of July, our surrounding communities help celebrate Independence Day with spectacular firework displays. Oftentimes, the firework shows are preceded by special events and activities during the day. The festivities are a great opportunity for us to spend some time with friends and neighbors. So pick a firework display, grab some extra blankets or lawn chairs and bug spray, and invite the family next door to join you for a fun evening outside!

Here are five Fourth of July celebrations happening nearby:

1. All American Fourth Fireworks

The City of Plano’s All American Fourth will be held both in-person at Oak Point Park and online for 2021. The in-person event begins at 6:00 PM on Sunday, July 4 at Red Tail Pavilion (formerly Oak Point Amphitheater). Parking can be found at Collin College, and food and beverages will be available for purchase. 

Fireworks will begin at 9:30 PM and will live stream on PTV and Plano Arts & Events Facebook page. Music will be simulcast on 97.5 KLAK.
