It's the Big Enchilada of local Independence Day celebrations, with activities for the kiddos, crafts, music, and inflatables. After a year of virtual everything, the Midway returns (with an admission fee) that gets you into games and rides along with cart foods and concession stands. The swan boats on Leonhardt Lagoon are back for rental as well. But this is the place to be for fireworks.

The city of Frisco does it up Texas style with a day of celebrations, including Taste of Frisco, which offers up tantalizing tidbits of local fare at the Main stage starting at 3 p.m. That's followed by Party in Simpson Plaza at 4 p.m., offering a vendor's village, a classic car show, hometown heroes featuring local first responders, an exhibit with rides and other amusements. Then wrap up the day with, what else? One of the largest fireworks extravaganzas anywhere around, immediately following Toyota Stadium's FC Dallas match.

What: Castle Hills July 4th Freedom Festival & Fireworks

Where: 2520 King Arthur Boulevard · Lewisville, TX 75056

This year’s activities will include the largest inflatable maze in Texas, bounce houses, water slides, a foam and bubble area as well as caricature artists, trackless train rides, face painters and more for the entire family. You can bring a blanket and/or lawn chairs to set up camp around Lake Avalon to get the best out of the fireworks display.
