Gathering together to watch fireworks is making its comeback this Fourth of July in Plano.
The display will be available in-person and streamed online, with additional activities for those coming in person.
Festivities will begin at 6 p.m. at the Red Trail Pavilion at Oak Point Park—previously known as the park’s Amphitheater—at 2801 E Spring Creek Parkway, Plano. There will be food and beverages available for purchase and parking will be available at Collin College across Spring Creek Parkway.
The fireworks will start at 9:30 p.m. along with a live stream on the city of Plano’s YouTube page, Plano TV and the Plano Arts & Events Facebook page, per a release from the city. Music for the display will simulcast on 97.5 FM, the KLAK station.
Those coming to watch are encouraged to bring blankets, coolers and lawn chairs, and to leave their pets at home.
Also in the spirit of Independence Day, Plano is hosting a lawn decorating contest. Those participating can send photos of their decorated lawns to with the subject line “Lawn Contest” by June 27. The submissions will be voted on by Facebook “likes” on Plano’s Arts & Events page from June 28-July 1.
Prizes for the contest include a 2-night stay at the Cambria Plano Frisco and family membership to the Heritage Farm Museum, among others.
A free coloring page, as well as more information on Plano’s July Fourth celebrations can be found at plano.gov/allamerican4th. Updates on the event will be shared via the city of Plano’s social channels.
