The 2013 Fort Worth's Fourth celebration is a very special occasion for Fort Worth. In honor of the 25th anniversary of Fort Worth Sister Cities International partnership with Nagaoka, Japan, half of the fireworks used in the show will be donated by the City of Nagaoka. This is very special as Nagaoka is known for producing some of the world’s most impressive fireworks and they’re ready to bring that legacy to Fort Worth. In addition to the fireworks donation, the Japanese half of the show will be set to music and choreographed by our Japanese friends. To learn more about what makes Nagaoka’s firework shows so unique, we recommend watching this video.  The second half of the show will have Texas style fireworks and is guaranteed to deliver even more special effects and surprises that last year!


Nagaoka Mayor Tamio Mori, Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price along with a large delegation from Japan, will be  joining the ceremony to re-affirm the 25 year old sister city partnership.

Fort Worth’s Fourth is a free family event with activities, food and fun. Families can enjoy jet ski shows, live music from Downtown Fever and Petty Theft, tubing, bounce houses, mini golf, horseback rides, face paint and more.
