Fourth of July is one of the most stress-free holidays. You don't have to worry about buying anyone gifts, prep and cook a smorgasbord of food or break out your fancy clothes.

While it's a bummer that fireworks are illegal to set off in your backyard, the Dallas-Fort Worth area is covered with events to celebrate America's independence in style.

We've come up with our picks for the best fireworks displays in North Texas, which was no easy task because there are so many options. Please feel free to add your picks for best fireworks shows in the comments, and see our list after the jump.
