If you're looking for a great fireworks display to feast your eyes on over the 4th of July holiday, head over to Addison.
Kaboom Town, the city's fireworks show on July 3 was named Travel + Leisure's Best July 4th Fireworks display.
A 4.4-square-mile suburb north of Dallas with 15,000 residents may seem an unlikely spot to celebrate the nation’s birthday, but it’s an excellent one—or so think the half-million people who watch the display each year. Preceded by flyovers of commemorative planes (courtesy of the town’s Cavanaugh Flight Museum) and the patriotic music of military bands, this show features the most current technology, the newest shells on the market, and a live radio simulcast.
Where to View: By virtue of northern Texas’s trademark flatness and lack of humidity, these fireworks’ spectacular displays can be seen from miles away, as if carried by the night air’s heat.
This year Kaboom Town will offer a free showing of "The Raiders of the Lost Ark" after the fireworks in Addison Circle Park.
