Where can we set up chairs and blankets?
Independence Park is the location for the event and will be the best place to view fireworks. This year the Fireworks will launch from Trophy Club’s Veterans Memorial so please keep that in mind when choosing your viewing spot. Please use our Best Viewing Locations Map when choosing your spot. Sidewalks and ramps must remain clear. Please be courteous and reserve only the space you need.
Can I see the fireworks at other locations in Town?
In the past residents have been able to see the fireworks at their homes, in their neighborhoods and from other sites such as the Trophy Club Country Club or Trophy Lakes Academy. Due to extenuating circumstances following the 2017 display, changes have been made including reducing the size of fireworks shells and relocating the launch location. This means that the show will be lower to the ground and have an impact on where in Trophy Club they can be seen from. At this time, the best locations for viewing the fireworks is in the event area identified on our Best Viewing Locations Map.
What happens to things after the event?
Anything left behind at the end of the event will be thrown away! Please take all of your belongings with you when you leave.
