What is Plano’s All American 4th?

The City of Plano is happy to announce a fireworks display for the July 4th Independence Day holiday. To keep this annual tradition alive, it took a partnership with a local landowner and a few necessary changes. The fireworks will launch from the Lavon Farms near the Plano Event Center, which is located at higher ground from where the display is usually launched at Oak Point Park & Nature Preserve. 

The pyrotechnics will be shot off at a higher altitude. Usually, fireworks explode at 300 to 500 feet. This year, they will be set off at 500 to 600 feet. That should allow them to be seen from farther away. There will be ample viewing options. We’re encouraging people to view the fireworks from their own homes, vehicles or neighborhoods.

Due to the circumstances, we will only present a fireworks show with no vendors, activities, etc. As always, the display will be set to music on radio station KLAK 97.5. 

We are proud to unify and rally as a community to celebrate our great nation’s birth, even in times of uncertainty.

Thank you to Lavon Farms and Lucky Layla whose partnership makes this fireworks display possible. 

The city will stream the fireworks on our Facebook page. You can listen in to coordinating music simulcast on 97.5 KLAK

Please see the posted Viewing Area Map

Please practice safe social distancing. Stay in your car while leaving a parking space between cars and wear a mask when in public.
