Fort Worth’s Fourth Celebrates 10 Years on the Trinity

Live Entertainment  |  Free KidsZone Activities  |   VIP Experience

FORT WORTH, TX – It’s not too early to start making plans for July 4th. In its 10th year, Fort Worth’s Fourth is celebrating our nation’s independence along the Trinity River. The family-friendly festival returns to Panther Island Pavilion on Tuesday, July 4. And as always, general admission, tubing, and KidsZone activities are absolutely free!

Expect a fun-filled afternoon of family activities, tubing and fly board shows. Plus live music from self-proclaimed Tex-Mex Honky Tonk band, the Tejas Brothers. Food, soda, water, and beer will be available for purchase on site. As the sun goes down, the sounds of Party Machine will fill the evening air. The high-energy band will play dance favorites and pump up the crowd for the spectacular fireworks finale. On the shore stage, 95.9 the Ranch will host three local bands in the Battle of the Bald Eagle Battle of the Bands contest. Flyboarders will also be performing lively shows on the river in between music acts, then right before the fireworks show lights up the sky, the jet-pack flyboarders will light up the river. 

Gates Open 2 pm   |   Live Music All-Day   |   Fireworks Show 10 pm

The little ones will love the KidZone area. Parents will love the price tag. Free activities throughout the day will include pony rides, face painting, bounce houses and zip lines. Plus, the ever-popular levee and water slides are back to provide hours of good old-fashioned fun for the young and young at heart.
