Celebrate July 4th With Fun, Family, and Fireworks

family fourth of july fun

There are many wonderful activities available to celebrate July 4th in Dallas. If you want enjoyment for the whole family and plenty of fireworks, there are five Dallas area events you should consider. Jeff Van Matre of the Jeff Van Matre Insurance Agency of Dallas, Texas reminds you that fireworks should be enjoyed at public events and not during fire season in a backyard setting, which could endanger your home.

Firework Safety:

Fireworks can be very dangerous if not enjoyed in a controlled setting. In 2012, the Consumer Product Safety Commission estimated that 8,700 people were injured from fireworks. Besides injury, millions of dollars of property damage occurred. The safest place to enjoy fireworks is in a community setting. Fortunately, Dallas has many to choose from.
