The area’s largest Independence Day celebration will move to the newly renovated Cotton Bowl this year. The event sponsored by Dr Pepper Snapple Group promises larger and higher fireworks, more games and more concessions. The FAIR PARK FOURTH presented by Friends of Fair Park will take place on Saturday, July 4, 2009, from 4:30 – 10 p.m.
The family friendly event will feature a national-class fireworks program and a patriotic presentation featuring the Dallas Wind Symphony, free admission to all the museums, kids activities, musical performances and other July 4th food favorites.
