Fourth of July is right around the corner and we know you’re looking for ways to celebrate! 🇺🇸 We’ve got a weekend full of fun with ice cream to a huge fireworks show!
Tuesday, July 3
It’s fireworks time! Because in Grand Prairie one night of fireworks just isn’t enough. Head over to Lone Star Park for the first night of Lone Stars & Stripes. The gates open at 3 pm and the first live race begins at 5 pm. In addition to fireworks and live racing, there will also be live music and a family fun park!
More of a baseball fan than horse racing? Come out to watch the Texas AirHogs and stay after the game for a watch party of the fireworks. Gates open at 4:30 pm and first pitch is at 5:35 pm.

Nothing says summer fun like an Ice Cream Challenge to help kick off your Fourth of July Weekend! Head out to the Grand Prairie Farmers Market to watch and taste as charities go head-to-head to see who has the best homemade ice cream recipe.
After picking up some goodies from the Farmers Market, head to one of our amazing lake parks, Loyd Park or Lynn Creek Park. Both are equipped with great amenities, boat launches, picnic spots, pavilions and more!
Enjoy your afternoon on the lake and grab some lunch or dinner at our floating restaurant, The Oasis. They have live music every weekend at the bar and the patio! After dinner catch E.T on the beach at Loyd Park. Show up early and bring a chair!

Don’t miss out on the all day fun at Traders Village. Experience shopping, live music from the DVA Kidz, carnival rides and more! Grab some yummy carnival foods for lunch!
Finish the rest of your day at Lone Star Park for some live horse racing. (Tip: bring a Pepsi can to the track to receive free general admission and a coupon for a free large Pepsi!)
