Arlington Fireworks July 3, 2020

Editor's Note: This article was updated June 25, 2020, to remove details about the Arlington 4th of July Association's Arlington Independence Day Parade, which was canceled due to COVID-19 concerns.

Celebrate the nation’s birthday in Arlington with a spectacular fireworks display Friday, July 3 in the heart of Arlington’s Entertainment District, just north of Globe Life Field.

In lieu of the annual Light Up Arlington festival and fireworks show in Downtown, where social distancing may be a challenge, the City is moving this year’s fireworks display to the Entertainment District. Globe Life Field, AT&T Stadium and Six Flags Hurricane Harbor parking lots will be open to the public so that families can set up chairs or tailgate at safe social distances and enjoy the free show, thanks to the City’s partnership with the Rangers, Cowboys and Six Flags.

These parking lots will open to the public at 8 p.m.

  • Texas Rangers Lots B, C, F, M and N
  • Dallas Cowboys Lot 4
  • Six Flags Hurricane Harbor parking lots 
  • Arlington Convention Center parking lot

Arlington’s firework show is set to begin at 9:30 p.m. in the skies over the stadium venues. Tune in to 95.9 The Ranch to enjoy patriotic music that accompanies the display. The broadcast is generously sponsored by Texas Live!, presented by Choctaw Casinos & Resorts + Powered by TXU.

No vendors or other events will be available at this year’s fireworks show, though Texas Live! establishments will be open to the public. Spectators are encouraged to remain at and around their vehicles, maintain social distancing, wear a mask when appropriate, maintain proper hand sanitation, keep all trash with them, and bring their own food and drinks. 

Expect road closures for the fireworks show. The City of Arlington has partnered with Waze to give drivers the best experience possible to get around town.
