BLANKETS/LAWN CHAIRS/SHADE STRUCTURES
Allowed. Attendees will be asked to lower their shade structures after sunset to improve visibility for the fireworks show.

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

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

ROAD CLOSURES
Road closures will begin in Keller Town Center at 10 p.m. Tuesday, July 2. Drivers will encounter closures on Bear Creek Parkway in front of Keller Town Hall from just east of the Keller ISD Natatorium to just west of the turn-in for Arthouse Keller’s resident parking lots. Town Center Lane will also close south of the Hampton Inn & Suites/Genie Rocket intersection.

At 10 a.m. Wednesday, July 3, closures will expand. Westbound Bear Creek Parkway traffic will encounter a closure immediately after Country Brook Drive, and Arthouse Keller residents will not be able to exit their complex to the south. Those parked in the Hampton Inn & Suites parking lot will also be forced to exit to the north, away from Bear Creek Parkway, and eastbound traffic will encounter a closure just after the first entrance to the Keller ISD Natatorium.

Finally, at 2 p.m. Wednesday, access will close for eastbound traffic on Bear Creek Parkway coming from Rufe Snow Drive and westbound traffic will end near Toulouse Lane. Southern access from Country Brook to Bear Creek will also close.

After this point, only shuttles, vehicles displaying handicap plates/placards, and those with a vendor or staff parking pass will be allowed past the barriers at the Rufe Snow/Bear Creek intersection.

PARKING & SHUTTLES
Free shuttle service will be available from the parking lot of LifeChurch just across Keller Parkway/1709 from Town Center (1075 Keller Pkwy.) and from the Keller High School/KISD Stadium parking lot at 601 Pate Orr Road North.

Four shuttles (including one ADA shuttle) will be running between each offsite lot from 3-11 p.m.

Don’t want to wait for a shuttle? Please use the sidewalks and pedestrian crosswalks at the Keller Parkway/Rufe Snow Drive intersection.

Handicap parking spots will be available on a first-come, first-served basis in the KISD Natatorium parking lot at 1000 Bear Creek Pkwy. Please use Rufe Snow Drive to enter Town Center and display your license plate or placard. Once spots are full, we encourage you to park in one of the overflow lots and use the ADA shuttle. 

Planning to park in the Keller Smithfield Activity Node lot or walk over from the Hidden Lakes area? Be sure to use Keller Smithfield and Bear Creek to reach Town Center; trail access from the east behind Keller Town Hall will be closed by 10 a.m. once the fireworks vendor is on site.

Parking elsewhere around Town Center? Watch for signage about private parking and no-parking zones, and please be respectful of area business owners and those who call Town Center home.
