12th Annual Light Up Arlington - July 3

Thursday, 31 May 2018 00:00

Light Up Arlington is right around the corner! Plan on coming downtown and celebrating the Parks and Recreation Department’s 12th annual Light Up Arlington with great food, awesome music and fireworks!

This year we are also selling Retail Vendor Spots at the event. If you are interested in obtaining an application, please contact Angie Dennehy at 817-459-6231.

Light Up Arlington 2018 will still extend north and south of City Hall to make room for activities. With overflowing crowds and heavy pedestrian traffic, the expansion helps alleviate crowd flow and smooth transportation for both the participants and event vendors.

There will be a children’s area located at First Baptist Church Wade building parking lot. The area will have many activities for the kids to enjoy. Get your groove on at one of our five stages with live entertainment located at The Levitt, the Wade building, the Municipal Office Tower, J Gilligan’s and Grease Monkey.

“We are very excited to celebrate the 12th anniversary of Light Up Arlington and the new additions to the layout,” Derek DeBusk, Rental and Lake Services Manager said. “We anticipate another fun-filled day and look forward to making this year’s celebration the best one yet.”

For the most up-to-date schedule and map, go to lightuparlington.com. We highly recommend visitors view the map before coming to the event as well as look at alternative parking areas.

While at the event, visitors can pull up a map to locate which booths they want to visit and see a schedule for the evening.

Food trucks will be available on site from 6 PM to 10 PM. The fireworks start at 9:45 PM and will be set to music from 95.9 The Ranch. Please note the fireworks will be launched from the Municipal Office Tower (101 S. Mesquite) again this year.

Visitors who want a spot at the Levitt Pavilion should arrive early and bring blankets or lawn chairs. The night will be packed with fun so grab the whole family or a group of friends and join us as we Light Up Arlington!
