Hudson Oaks prepares for another breathtaking Boomin’ 4th

The City of Hudson Oaks, once again, is bringing what has arguably become one of the most popular Fourth of July events in North Texas - the Boomin’ 4th.

On Monday, July 4, the Gene L. Voyles Park in Hudson Oaks will be transformed for the big Independence Day event, celebrating the nation's birthday, all 240.

Kicking off the entertainment at 6 p.m. the Langdon Center Big Band will perform, followed by recording artist Green River Ordinance headlining at 8 p.m. A recognition of all military branches will follow honoring veterans. Wrapping up the night at approximately 9:15 p.m. will be 25 minutes of spectacular, choreographed fireworks extravaganza.

"We're very excited for this year's edition of Boomin' 4th,” Patrick Lawler, city administrator said. “In addition to the great fireworks, we're proud to have Green River Ordinance providing musical entertainment that's a perfect fit for a family-friendly environment.”

City officials ask to bring your family and friends, wear your red, white and blue, grab your lawn chairs and head over to Gene L. Voyles Park, 210 Hudson Oaks Drive in Hudson Oaks. The family-fun-filled event will offer festivities for all ages, arts and crafts, face painting, live music and food vendors; serving hot dogs, BBQ, tacos, snow cones, ice cream and much more.

This traditional, patriotic salute is free and open to the community. Park at the Hudson Oaks WalMart, exit 411 off of I-20, and ride the free shuttle bus to the event. The shuttles will start at 5:30 p.m. and run until 10:15 p.m.

“There is no better place to celebrate Independence Day than Boomin' 4th,” Mayor Pat Deen said. “It is the premier fireworks show in Parker County, and it would not be possible without the support of our great sponsors and community partners. It takes a true team effort to make this event so special.

Ice chests are welcome, but no glass bottles or pop-up tents please. Come early for the perfect spot; bring your lawn chairs and blankets.
