This ultimate list of Dallas celebrations only includes two in Dallas (The Meyerson and the Libertine). You win this time, suburbs.


Ah, Lakewood and Fair Park are in the Dallas that I live in, dweeb.

And to be honest, how many fireworks shows does one city need?

But the article should really be called "The Ultimate List of DFW Fourth of July Celebrations". But does any one expect professional writing from this HS paper?


@Eram that's because all the Americans live in the Burb's
