Four Great 4th Events in Fort Worth

We hope all of the residents of Lincoln Trinity Bluff have a great 4th of July weekend! We want to remind everyone to be safe and to be responsible. But, we also want you to have a good time.

So, we thought we would compile some great things for you to do this weekend. And since it is the Fourth of July, we thought giving you 4 very fun things was just the right way to go about it. So, here they are:

4 Great Fourth of July Events in Fort Worth

  1. Fort Worth’s Fourth. Celebrate a free fun event on the Trinity River complete with live music, inner tubes, and plenty of food and of course fireworks!
  2. Concerts in the Garden. Held at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden, this local tradition blends an amazing fireworks display with heart-pounding marches by the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra.
  3. Willie Nelson’s Fourth of July Picnic . There is no way we could give an accurate summary of how amazing this will be, you will just have to read the entire webpage for yourself.
  4. Fort Worth Cats . Why not enjoy the all American pastime on an All American holiday?

So, what are your plans for the Fourth of July? We would love to hear about them. Don’t forget to post photos of any fun things you did this weekend to the Lincoln Trinity Bluff Facebook page!

Take me out to the Fort Worth Cats Baseball game!

Cheer on the the Cats with the Fort Worth mascot!

Less than a mile and a half away from Lincoln Trinity Bluff, you can enjoy a time-honored summer tradition by attending a baseball game! Take a friend, your family or even a date over to Lagrave Field for a game this season. Buy some peanuts, crackerjacks and an ice cold beverage while you cheer on your hometown team, the Fort Worth Cats.

You don’t have to be a huge sports fan to enjoy a day out at the ballgame. Easy to follow along and with the potential for very exciting moments, baseball is a fun sport for any type of spectator. Make a whole day of it and pack up a picnic and cooler and tailgate prior to the game. Don’t forget to bring your glove in case a foul ball comes your way!
