Selecting from a menu of July 4 celebrations around the Metroplex will provide many events over the next two weekends. Red Oak, Corsicana, Waxahachie and Athens offer a full-range of activities for children through adults, each including a fireworks show.
Ennis recently concluded two major events in the Bluebonnet Festival and the Polka Festival, the latter drawing crowds of 40,000 to 50,000. Satisfying a thirst for fireworks and picnics, however, will require a short drive to surrounding cities.
