Oak Cliff Fourth of July

The Oak Cliff Jaycees put on big fireworks displays at Kiest Park up until the mid-1980s, but now there is no fireworks show in our neighborhood and no big celebration. While Bastille Day gets major treatment in Oak Cliff nowadays, the Fourth is low key.Lakewood-Parade-1970s

There are a couple of things going on in celebration of American independence.

    Maybe nothing organized, but I bet we had more fireworks and firepower than the rest of Dallas County combined. It was great.

    They did that once, I think two years ago. The theater is closed for the holiday this year, but check out their schedule. They have “National Lampoon’s Vacation” and “A Band Called Death” this weekend. http://thetexastheatre.com/movies-events
