City’s free 4th of July celebration

Trio Grande, a ZZ Top cover band, is the headliner for the City’s free Independence Day concert and fireworks show on Tuesday, July 4. The celebration takes place at Chisenhall Fields Sports Complex, 500 W. Hidden Creek Pkwy. The gates will open at 5 p.m., with the concert starting at 7:30 p.m. and the fireworks at approximately 9:20 p.m.

The day’s celebration starts at 9 a.m. on July 4 with the Burleson Lions Club’s 13th annual Independence Day Parade. The parade route starts at Kerr Middle School and winds from Irene Street to Gregory Street, Johnson Avenue, Ellison Street, Wilson Street, Bufford Street, Warren Street, Gregory, and back to Irene. The parade will pass in front of Burleson City Hall.

Residential streets around the parade staging area (Lena Lane, Irene, Dian Street, Gregory) will be closed starting at 6:30 a.m. on July 4. Johnson Avenue, between Gardens Boulevard and Renfro Street - including all side streets along the entire parade route - will be closed between 8:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. If you are within the parade route and need to get out for an emergency, go to the intersection of Eldred and Warren streets and police officers will assist you.

For more information, email Burleson Lions Club or visit their website.

The fun continues into the night with the 90-minute concert by Trio Grande, followed by the fireworks show choreographed to patriotic music.

This is the seventh year in a row that Chisenhall Fields will play host to the City’s Independence Day Celebration concert and fireworks show. The City stage will be set up in the field just to the right of the arched entrance to the sports complex. Trio Grande will perform until the lights go down to signal the start of the fireworks show, after 9:20 p.m. Patrons are encouraged to sit on the field surrounding the stage, in the bleachers or on most of the fields throughout the park. The concession stand will be open but patrons may also bring a picnic and beverages. No alcohol, glass bottles, pets, tents or canopies/pop-ups are permitted in the park. Fireworks, including sparklers, are also not permitted.  No outside vendors are allowed within the park.

In order to protect the safety of the pedestrians and those driving in to the sports complex, Irene Street will be closed at Hidden Creek after ingress is completed. Hidden Creek Parkway westbound will remain open throughout the event. Hidden Creek Parkway eastbound will close at Irene Street for post-event traffic flow. Traffic coming out of Chisenhall Fields main gate may turn right, only (towards I-35W) on to Hidden Creek Parkway. 

The sports complex will have additional spots marked for handicapped parking. Once the parking lot is full no other vehicles will be allowed in the park. When the event is over and vehicles start leaving the complex, for safety reasons, no vehicles will be allowed to enter the complex for approximately 30-40 minutes so that pedestrians and vehicles can clear the park. Those picking up people from the celebration will be allowed in to the complex once the majority of vehicles are clear.

There are more than 600 parking spaces at Chisenhall Fields, more than 200 spaces available for overflow at Hidden Creek Sports Complex and a limited number of parking spaces at the newly opened Bailey Lake Park, again no off-road parking is allowed at Bailey Lake. Sidewalks connect the venue.
