Addison Kaboom Town!®

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 celebration is city-wide, with a fantastic party in the 12-acre Addison Circle Park, watch parties at many of Addison’s 180+ restaurants (with more restaurants per capita than any city in the U.S.), 23 hotels 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. Afterwards, 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.
