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. While 4.4 square-mile Addison is only home to 16,000 residents, more than a half-million guests from across the nation come to celebrate Addison Kaboom Town!® each July 3.
The Addison Kaboom Town! ® 25-minute-long fireworks show is among the best in the nation, and the celebration is citywide, with watch parties at many of Addison’s 200+ restaurants and at a fantastic, limited-capacity party in the 12-acre Addison Circle Park. Entry to the party in Addison Circle Park is available only with a free ticket, which can be ordered online beginning Wednesday, June 22 at 10 a.m. The link to FREE tickets can be found here.
Once public park admission tickets are all claimed, booking a hotel package in one of Addison’s 22 hotels is the only way to guarantee entry into the party in the park. Guests who book a hotel package will enjoy quality accommodations and receive a neck cooling towel and guaranteed admission to Addison Circle Park for up to six people.
