Happenings: Fourth of July in Oak Cliff

The Fourth of July always seems to sneak up. Before you know it you’re waking up the day of wondering what there is to do.

In anticipation of this feeling, what is going on in Oak Cliff this year for the 4th?

The Kessler Plaza Neighborhood Association hosts its annual children’s bicycle parade around Moss Park. Festivities begin at 11:30 a.m., with a cookout after the parade.

The city’s official celebration is MetroPCS Fair Park Fourth, from 4-10 p.m. The tradition in Oak Cliff has been to watch the fireworks from the Commerce Street bridge, so we’re guessing there could be some families posted up on our side of Large Marge this year.

There are also Fourth of July fireworks at Lone Star Park and, on Friday July 6, at the Ballpark in Arlington.

If you’d rather celebrate indoors, the Texas Theatre has four screenings of “The Amazing Spiderman,” starting with a 1:30 p.m. matinee.

    Shakespeare in the Park is performing Coriolanus July 4, with fireworks at intermission.  The play is sufficiently complex and ethically ambiguous for you intellectuals, and full of enough sword fighting for you children.  Check it out!
