NBC 5 invites you to make plans now to celebrate our nation’s independence on and along the Trinity River at Fort Worth’s Fourth! The family-friendly festival will take place July 4th at Panther Island Pavilion. As always, general admission is free along with tubing and an entire kids’ zone.
A favorite addition from last year, the event will bring back the option for event patrons to experience the festival in style with VIP tickets. VIP tickets are on sale now and amenities include: prime fireworks and water show views, reserved seating, a shaded lounge area, private bathrooms and a cash bar, VIP parking and more.
The free kid zone will include pony rides, face painting, bounce houses, interactive exhibits, zip lines, levee slide, water slides and more. The celebration will take place all afternoon with family activities, tubing, water shows plus live music from Texas Country artist Gary P. Nunn and high-energy cover band, Party Machine.
Tickets to the VIP area will cost $40 and seating is limited. Tickets sold out quickly last year, we encourage purchasing tickets online in advance. Tickets can be purchased at FortWorthsFourth.com. Food, soda, water and beer will be for purchase on site. Gates open at 2:00 p.m., live music will be from 6:00 p.m. - 9:30 p.m. and the largest fireworks show on the Fourth of July in North Texas will begin at approximately 10:00 p.m.

As well as supporting sponsors Tarrant County College, City of Fort Worth, Oncor, Streams & Valleys, Inc., NBC 5, 95.9 The Ranch, 92.1 Hank FM, Telemundo 39 and the Star-Telegram.
