It’s not too early to start making plans for July Fourth.
In its 11th year, Fort Worth’s Fourth is celebrating our nation’s independence along the Trinity River. The family-friendly festival returns to Panther Island Pavilion on July 4. General admission, tubing and KidsZone activities are free.
Gates open at 2 p.m. Expect a fun-filled afternoon of family activities, tubing and flyboard shows, plus live music from self-proclaimed America’s Favorite Cover Band, Poo Live Crew. Food, soda, water and beer will be available for purchase.
As the sun goes down, the sounds of Downtown Fever will fill the evening air. The high-energy band will play dance favorites and pump up the crowd for the spectacular fireworks finale. On the shore stage, 95.9 the Ranch will host three local bands in the Battle of the Bands contest. Flyboarders will perform lively shows on the river between music acts, then right before the fireworks show lights up the sky, the jet-pack flyboarders will light up the river.
Back for year four is the VIP Experience. Pass holders will enjoy perks such as an excellent view of the fireworks and water shows, reserved seating and a shaded lounge area. Access to a cash bar, air-conditioned restrooms and VIP parking pass sweeten the deal. VIP passes range from $50-$60 each are available for online purchase in advance.
The celebration is produced by the Trinity River Vision Authority.
