With summer travel plans in hand, we're ready to embark on destinations unknown for a fun-filled July. For those wanderers whose travel plans include Irving, or Irvingites who are looking to stay close to home, there is some firecracker hot fun to be found around town.

This month, we are excited to announce that Bill Maher, Koe Wetzel, Sebastian Maniscalco, Lindsey Stirling and 3 Doors Down are all coming to The Pavilion at Toyota Music Factory. There's also a long list of local live music performers around town. And it wouldn't be July in America without an Independence Day parade and fireworks display, which are LIVE this year! 

Whether you like the outdoors, a small indoor gathering with friends or a fulfilling night on the town, come to Irving and experience it all. Take in the night life complete with live music, enjoy some weekend funget outdoors, visit the arts, or see what's going on at the Irving Convention Center, it's all waiting for you to explore. 

Considering recent events, I have been moved to dig a little deeper into this historical day, and I’d encourage you to do the same. You’re certain to learn something new.
