It's summertime in Frisco, which means it's time to float the Lazy River at a RoughRiders baseball game, cheer on FC Dallas at a soccer match, explore Limestone Quarry park, and of course, celebrate America's birthday at Frisco Freedom Fest!
Frisco Freedom Fest presented by CoServ will take place on Monday, July 4. Don't miss your once-in-a-year chance to celebrate our nation's birthday with yummy food, great music, and aaahhh-worthy fireworks! Planning to be there? Here's what you need to know:
About the Celebration
Party in the Plaza begins at 4 p.m. and features fun activities for the entire family including live music on stage, Children's Expo, and the Taste of Frisco.
Fireworks begin approximately at 9:45 p.m. following the conclusion of the FC Dallas match. The 20-minute show is one of the largest in North Texas. Four FC Dallas parking lots will be available to the public for viewing. Public can enter Tundra Platinum, Camry Gold Lot, Corolla Red Lots, and Highlander Green Lots. Fireworks are also visible from the area around Purefoy Municipal Center.
As a warm up to the Independence Day festivities, Frisco also hosts several events on July 3 including the Cornhole Tournament and The Hotter 'n Firecrackers 5K & Glow Run. Learn more here.
Please remember, this is a family-oriented event. No alcohol is allowed and dogs should stay home. For up-to-date information, head to friscofreedomfest.org.
Along with the holiday events, we also recommend checking out:
Shopping: Stop by the locally-owned boutiques in the Rail District or take advantage of big-store savings at The Centre at Preston Ridge or Stonebriar Centre.
Places to Eat: All this fun and you're bound to work up an appetite. If you want to enjoy a good meal while watching the fireworks, consider heading to the Rail Yard, Chito's, or Jake's, which all offer a good view of the show.
Make it a weekend and book an overnight stay in one of Frisco's many hotels.
