Hundreds of thousands of people will be in and around Addison on Tuesday night for Kaboom Town. It’s considered one of the best fireworks shows in the country.
Organizers said they're ready for the heat and any problems it might cause for people. They have misting tents with free slushies set up to give people a break from the heat and they’re encouraging everyone to remember to drink lots of water.
“It’s July in Texas, everybody knows it’s gonna be hot. This isn’t too different from years past, we just encourage people to be smart, drink a lot of water, stay hydrated. If you need help, look for someone to help you. We’ve got police and fire located on site in several locations and they have a misting tent as well,” said Addison’s Mary Rosenbleeth.
Kaboom Town features live music and food, in addition to an air show and fireworks. The gates at Addison Circle Park open at 4 p.m. The live music starts at 5 p.m. and the fireworks start at 9:30 p.m.
The key is to get there early because the event will be closed off once it reaches capacity. Organizers are expecting close to a half million in Addison Circle to watch the display.
Pyro crews were busy setting up about 3,000 different fireworks for the 30 minute show. Half of the fireworks will be used in the first part of the show and the other half is just for the last two minutes of the grand finale.
