Nothing says freedom like a hometown Fourth-of-July parade and fireworks show. Most events feature fabulous food, fun games, and lots of shopping, so bring your blankets, chairs, and wagons!
Each year, Fort Worth Moms publishes a roundup of Fourth of July events happening around the Tarrant County area. After most events were cancelled last year, we were thrilled to update the list of happenings.
For more summertime fun, cool off with our “Guide to Pools, Splash Pads, and Water Parks” and “Guide to Swim Lessons.” You’ll find plenty to keep your kids active this summer in our “Guide to Summer Camps” and “Guide to Indoor Activities.”
