Donate to the Lake Cities 4th of July Fireworks Show

The Lake Cities 4th of July is a spectacular, one-of-a-kind celebration that unites the communities of Lake Dallas, Corinth, Hickory Creek and Shady Shores in celebration of our Nation’s birth. The festivities begin with a patriotic parade followed by food, contests, vendors, Kid's Zone with inflatable water slides, horseback rides and toe tappin’ music. The day is brought to a close with one of the largest, most dazzling fireworks displays in the area.

A big thank you goes out to our fireworks show sponsors:
