Can you believe Fourth of July is just around the corner? It’s less than a month away, and we’re getting excited about all the parades, picnics, fireworks displays and concerts that are going to fill the weekend.

We’re keeping a map of holiday events in Lakewood/East Dallas, Lake Highlands, Oak Cliff, Preston Hollow and Far North Dallas; check out what we’ve got so far below. Is your house of worship, neighborhood association, school or organization celebrating this year? First share the event with us and other visitors by entering it into our EventFinder here. Then we’ll put it on this map.

If you’re like us, you don’t make plans until the last minute when you’re already out. Scan the QR code on the left with your smartphone (download a QR code reader from your smartphone’s app store, launch the app, then point your phone’s camera lens at the code). That way you’ll have it on your phone and can whip it out when it’s time to decide where to hang out on Fourth of July weekend.
