In Lake Dallas July 4th is an Entire Day of Family Fun

Monday, July 4, 9 a.m. – 10 p.m. • Admission is FREE
Lake Dallas City Park • 101 E Hundley Dr, Lake Dallas, TX

While July 4th is an important holiday all over the DFW area, nothing rivals the spectacular, one-of-a-kind celebration that takes place at Lake Dallas City Park. This unique fun-filled festival unites the communities of Lake Dallas, Corinth, Hickory Creek and Shady Shores.

It all begins with a patriotic parade at 9:00 a.m. and then a day of food, contests, exhibitions, vendors, inflatable water slides, horseback rides and great music.

The main stage will be hopping all day with contests and performances. From local bands, to local dance troupes to zany contests, there will never be a dull moment at the park. To top it all off, the day will end with one of the largest, most dazzling fireworks displays in the area, celebrating our nation’s birthday.

Parking is always a challenge, but the schools and churches in the area are accommodating. Make sure to pack your sunscreen and your pet may come but must be on a leash. Food vendors of all kinds will be available all day. You may bring lawn chairs and blankets but no glass bottles or alcohol may be brought in. There will also be cooling tents in case the heat gets to be too much.

R&B group Big Gus and the Swampadelic perform from 5-6pm followed by a Beard and Mustache contest. Fake, decorated beards will be accepted and, yes, kids are allowed to enter with their heavily decorated false facial hair. That should be a hoot!

Headliner Eleven Hundred Springs takes the stage at 7pm, playing their own brand of country rock. These long-haired, tattooed, hippie freaks are an outlaw country band who influences include Willie Nelson, Buck Owens and Doug Sahm.

Throughout the day, musical performances by various local bands will also take the stage as well as community groups including Corinth Gymnastics.

In addition to the beard and mustache contest, there will be an Apple Pie Bake Off as well as the Watermelon Eating Contest promptly followed by the Seed Spitting Contest. The one that goes the furthest, wins! Winning contestants will be awarded cash prizes as well as ribbons.

If you are looking for great family fun this July 4th, the celebration at Lake Dallas is the perfect day-long event for you.
