Addison Kaboom Town!

Addison Circle Park

For more than three decades, one of the nation’s most impressive and unique Independence Day celebrations has been held in the North Texas town of Addison. More than a half million guests from across the nation come to celebrate Addison Kaboom Town!® each July 3. The celebration is city wide, with a fantastic party in Addison Circle Park, watch parties at many of Addison’s restaurants, local hotel packages and the incredible Addison Airport Air Show which can be seen from anywhere in town! The 30 minute long fireworks show, which is presented by Methodist Hospital for Surgery, is among the best in the nation and is radio simulcast each year. Afterward, while area traffic calms, attendees are invited to remain in Addison Circle Park as famed party band Emerald City shares a high energy concert on the Budweiser Main Stage.

Gates open at 4 p.m. Admission into Addison Circle Park is FREE and is first-come, first served. Concessions are available in the park. Guests are encouraged to leave coolers and bags at home to expedite entry into the park. Those choosing to bring coolers must limit the size to no larger than 16”X20”X12”.  Absolutely no alcohol can be brought into or out of Addison Circle Park. Beer and wine will be available for sale within the park.
