Below is an outline of events highlighting a few fun ideas we recommend you include in your vacation.

Annual Patriotic Concert - 12:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
After the parade, make your way to the Gerald R Ford Amphitheater for some fun in the sun and live music. Enjoy a performance by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra.
