If you’re looking for an evening filled with Igloo coolers, Toby Keith t-shirts, and more potassium nitrate than you ever thought humanly possible, then you need to get your cutoffs to Kaboomtown in Addison on July 3rd for their annual fireworks bonanza-extravaganza. The Wall Street Journal named it one of the top five fireworks shows in the nation and even though you’d think they had better things to report on, Kaboomtown really the only way to properly celebrate our purple mountains majesty. There’s an air show, food, fireworks set to a soundtrack and live music for those not in a hurry to park on the Tollway after it’s all over. Gates open at 3:00 p.m., the event kicks off at 5:00 p.m. and Kaboomtown will light up the night at approximately 9:30 p.m. Unlike freedom, this event is free, but you’re gonna need a ticket so print one out at addisontexas.net.
