Our spectacular, 4th-annual event will run from 4-10 p.m. tomorrow, July 3 at Keller Town Hall, 1100 Bear Creek Pkwy. Here’s everything you need to know:

Attendees wishing to claim their spot for the event in advance may do so beginning at 10 a.m. Please plan appropriately, as resident vehicles will not be allowed past the barricades on Bear Creek Parkway or Town Center Lane to drop off picnic setups. (See road closure details below.)

Attendees may bring their own food and drinks, including alcohol, to enjoy. Various food trucks and drink vendors will also be available to serve you! Please do not bring any glass into the event area.

Allowed. Attendees will be asked to lower their shade structures after sunset to improve visibility for the fireworks show.

The back patio of Keller Town Hall will serve as an accessible viewing area for attendees using wheelchairs, walkers, etc. Those attendees (and their families) can access the back patio from the sidewalks on either side of Town Hall.

Between anticipated crowds, extreme heat and a 15-minute fireworks show, Keller Lights is NOT a pet-friendly event. Service animals only, please.

Attendees are not allowed to bring or use drones within the event footprint. The only drones attendees should see in the air belong to the Keller Police Department and the event’s official photographer.

Whether it’s a golf cart, neighborhood electric vehicle or electric scooter, it’s not allowed.
