It's Almost KaboomTown Time!

Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart Stars TX #0552717

Every July 3rd, the Town of Addison celebrates our nation's birth with an evening of fun, food, and fireworks with an event we call KaboomTown. This year, 2024, is the 40th celebration of our nationally rated** celebration of freedom.

While the action centers around the 12-acre Addison Circle Park, fireworks and the airshow, (with take-offs from and landings at the Addison Airport) all can be seen from anywhere in the 4.4 square-mile town. The 17,000 resident population of Addison swells to more than a half-million people from across the continent to witness KaboomTown.  And the 200+ restaurants and 22 hotels host watch parties for those who choose to watch from outside the park.

It's the best place in the country on July 3rd. Almost everywhere else, the fireworks are on the 4th.

Hello Lorrie - while I am not a fan of fireworks, Independence Day is certainly worthy of celebration.  And Kaboomtown in Addison Texas has a festive feeling.

Michael Jacobs There's plenty of other stuff to take in besides the fireworks - food trucks, the air show, people-watching, the music. Let's hope for good weather.
