We all like to go out, spend time with loved ones, and "ooh" and "aah" over the brilliant colors in the sky. So, if you are in the Austin area on July 4th and want to catch some of the spectacular displays in the sky, you may want to check these out...

PERSONAL OPINION: With this venue already being an amphitheater, The Austin Symphony Orchestra should sound absolutely perfect under the Texas sky filled with Fireworks!

2. Bob Schneider's 4th of July Bash
12225 Highway 290 West
Austin, TX 78737
TIME: Opens at 6PM and show starts at 7:30pm
PARKING: Plenty of parking and they usually state the charge the day of the event. (I’ve paid $5 and $10 to park here before)
FEES: V.I.P tables cost from $250-$350 for 4 People
Around $21 for Advanced General Admission
PERSONAL OPINION: You can bring in one small folding chair. This is a great 4th of July date night with friends or your significant other. I wouldn’t suggest bringing the kids to this one. It seems to have more of a drinking vibe for the night.
The V.I.P tables sell out early so book now!

3. VOLENTE BEACH FIREWORKS SHOW
WHERE: The Shore Club
16107 FM 2769

PARKING: Plenty of parking

Fajita Buffet: They do offer a Fajita Buffet that sells out in advance so make sure to call ahead and reserve a spot! 7 pm by reservation Only. The cost is $25 for Adults & $13 for kids 12 and under (for reservations please call 512-258-5110).
PERSONAL OPINION: If you want to be by the water this is a great spot to watch the fireworks. I am not a fan of the dark drive leaving the venue with so many people. Please drive carefully!
4. OLD SETTLERS PARK FIREWORKS IN ROUND ROCK, TX
Round Rock, TX 78665
TIME: 10 pm Fireworks Begin
PARKING: There is a fee for parking.
FEES: Entrance is Free; however, there is a fee for parking.
PERSONAL OPINION: The Fireworks which begin at 10 pm are timed with a concert from the Austin Symphonic Band - which is awesome. This is one of the most family friendly fourth of July events that I have attended in the Austin area.
Highway 79 may be quite busy that day since The Round Rock Express will also host a game that night and will host fireworks right after their game. But, on the other hand, sit in the right spot and you get two fireworks shows in Old Settlers Park because you can see the Dell Diamond Round Rock Express fireworks as well!
Plan to get their early!
