For thousands of families, no Independence Day celebration is complete without experiencing Addison Kaboom Town!®, one of America’s most highly rated fireworks shows. Held annually on July 3, the fireworks show is enjoyed by more than 500,000 people, many of whom come from outside of North Texas. With more restaurants per capita than any city in the U.S. (more than 180 restaurants) and 23 hotels in its compact 4.4-square-mile footprint, many families from across the country decide to make a visit to Addison’s famed fireworks show a weekend getaway rather than a day trip.
The diverse hoteliers in this bustling community have partnered with Addison to offer affordable packages at a wide range of properties. Addison Kaboom Town!® hotel packages start at $65 and include:
- Guaranteed admission for up to four guests at the Addison Circle Park Watch Party
- An Addison branded picnic blanket
Purchasing a hotel package is the only guaranteed way to get admission into Addison Circle Watch Party.
Guests who plan to visit North Texas to enjoy Addison Kaboom Town!® can experience many of the other attractions in the area, including the Cavanaugh Flight Museum, Pete’s Dueling Piano Bar, Addison Improv, WaterTower Theatre, the Mary Kay Museum, as well as shopping at Village on the Parkway and other Addison retail centers.
