What’s Up Fort Worth is always on the lookout for updates on our favorite annual events and festivals. It’s been one heck of a year, and there’s been a lot of shifts and cancellations. Unfortunately, social distancing requirements have forced adjustments to be made to one of our favorite annual festivals — Panther Island’s Fort Worth’s Fourth. Here’s a quick update from the Panther Island Team regarding this year’s Fourth of July events.
For the health and safety of our community, it is with a saddened heart that we had to modify this year’s Annual Fort Worth’s Fourth Celebration. Our skies will still be lit with the largest fireworks show in the metroplex; however, the festival portion of the event will not take place. To limit gathering, Panther Island Pavilion will be closed and there will be no activities.
We will still celebrate our nation’s birthday with our largest fireworks show ever. This year we celebrate those who fought for our freedom and honor our first responders, healthcare workers, and everyone on the front line.
Watch the largest fireworks show on the Fourth of July in North Texas from the comfort of your home, backyard or balcony. The show will be larger and taller this year so it can be seen from a distance! Everything will be high in the sky! NO GROUND EFFECTS AT PANTHER ISLAND PAVILION. DO NOT COME TO THE VENUE.
Kayaks, SUPs or canoes are not allowed on the Trinity River at Panther Island Pavilion for the Fourth of July fireworks. Upstream river access will end at the Henderson Street Bridge on the Clear Fork and at the Fort Worth & Western Railroad Bridge on the West Fork. Downstream river access will end at the North Main Street Bridge on the West Fork. Follow all signs and stay out of the fireworks zone for your own safety. Additionally, motor boats are prohibited on the Trinity River.
