The red-white-and-blue day is approaching; our beloved country’s birthday y and the most celebrated patriotic date. Although Dallas and surrounding cities are organizing their best 4th of July events, not all are suitable to take family and children. Not to mention the distance and traffic you have to overcome to get there.
For that reason, we made this list with some of the best Dallas fourth of July 2019 events, with their locations and schedules so you avoid setbacks. We also chose events with activities suitable for children, so that all members of the family can celebrate.
Price: free entry
Day and time: July 4 from 10 am to 10 pm.
Location: McKinney Downtown and McKinney Soccer Complex (40 minutes driving from Dallas).
Celebrate Independence Day with a classic car parade. Maybe participate and win the $500 prize with your best vehicle? Who knows? But if you don’t want to compete, just enjoy the patriotic event and head over to Craig Ranch for family activities and games starting in the afternoon. Oh, and don’t go home before you see the fireworks show starting at 9 pm!
Price: $10 to $59 per participant
Day and time: July 4 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Place: Klyde Warren Park (in Dallas).
If you want to start the holiday with the right foot, participate in the Five on the 4th races. What’s good? The money raised at the event will be for the benefit of the YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas. What’s best? In addition to the 5-mile and 5k run for people with good condition, there will be walks and races where children, and even the beloved family pet, can participate. This event will end at noon so you can return home, take a bath, and continue the day elsewhere.
