Fort Worth’s Fourth returns to Panther Island Pavilion
It’s not too early to start making plans for the Fourth of July. In its 12th year, Fort Worth’s Fourth celebrates the nation’s independence along the Trinity River.
The family-friendly festival returns to Panther Island Pavilion on Thursday, July 4. And as always, general admission, tubing and KidsZone activities are free.
Patrons are encouraged to arrive early to enjoy family activities, tubing and water 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 on site. As the sun goes down, the sounds of Party Machine Band will fill the evening air. The high-energy cover band will play dance favorites and pump up the crowd for the spectacular fireworks finale. The shore stage will host three local bands in the Battle of the Bald Eagle Battle of the Bands contest. A jet-pack hydroflight show will light up the river to kick off a 29-minute fireworks show, the largest in North Texas on July 4.
Gates open at 2 p.m., and the fireworks show starts at 10 p.m.
The little ones will love the KidZone area. Parents will love the price tag. Free activities throughout the day will include horseback rides, face painting, bounce houses, water slides, zip line and more. Free tubing on the river keeps everyone cool on a hot day. Attendees can arrive early with pop-up tents and blankets to claim a spot for the big show.
