Addison Kaboom Town

Addison Circle Park

For more than three decades, Addison has been home to one of the nation’s most impressive and unique Independence Day celebrations. Approximately a half-million guests from across the nation head to North Texas for our annual town wide party, with celebrations hosted at many of Addison’s hotels and 200+ restaurants, as well as a gathering in the 12-acre Addison Circle Park featuring high-energy music and a wide selection of food and beverage options.   The festival’s pyrotechnic display is named among the top fireworks shows in the country each year by the American Pyrotechnics Association, Yahoo, Fodor’s, USA Today, the Wall Street Journal, Travel + Leisure Magazine, and more. The incredible Addison Airport Aerial Salute, which precedes the fireworks display, can be seen from anywhere in town. Attendees are immersed in patriotic revelry, no matter what part of Addison they are in!   Admission is free; however, tickets are required for all ages for entry. Tickets will be available at
