Dallas Texas home builders July 4th celebratory ideas!


Altura Homes, your favorite Dallas Texas home builder, wishes you and yours a safe and great Fourth of July holiday. Check out these star studded Independence Day celebratory ideas.


  1. All-American BBQ – No Fourth of July let is complete without an all-American barbecue. Invite your neighbors over for a festive time. Have a menu with all the BBQ favorites including ribs, chicken, pulled pork, hot dogs, hamburgers, corn on the cob, baked beans, potato salad, macaroni salad, grilled veggies and watermelon. Wash these down with patriotic cocktails, sangria, beer and kid-friendly beverages.  Don’t forget the red velvet cupcakes to get in the dessert spirit. Since it’s the Fourth of July your color scheme is already set but mix it up a bit with various patterns of red, white and blue. Plastic cutlery and cups make for an easy clean up. Keep guests entertained with bubble wrap hopscotch, DIY ring toss game and a pie eating contest to name a few. A karaoke machine is perfect for belting out patriotic tunes.
  2. Picnic to Go – Have a party on wheels with a portable picnic wagon. Decorate the wagon with flags, bandana garland and fill it with items that’ll make your picnic complete. This is perfect for heading to your front yard or watching a parade or the fireworks somewhere.
  3. Fair Park Fourth – If you’re looking for something in town then head over to Fair Park for the City of Dallas’ official Independence Day celebration. Admission is $5 or free for participants of the “Dallas 7/4” race. There will be live music, 26 rides, games and concessions. Costs vary for the games and rides. This event runs from 10am to 10pm.
  4. New York in Dallas – You don’t have to head to Coney Island for a hot dog eating contest. Instead there’s the 6th Annual Brass knuckle Cord Dog Eating Contest at the Libertine Bar for both kids and adults. This event begins at 11 am and there’s even a fun dunk tank. Participants need to register by 5pm. The kids contest kicking off at 5:30pm followed by the adults contest at 7pm.
