Don’t want to get stuck in the crowds for this show? Here are some Mom tips:
- If you want to bypass the crowds and just see the fireworks then lots of people bring lawn chairs and start parking/sitting out along Parker Road and Jupiter and even further down. Sam’s Club might have people there as well as at Collin College parking lot. These places are close enough so that you can see the show and not get stuck in the craziness!
- Bring your own lawn chairs/blankets/drinks/food to save money. Coolers are allowed but no alcoholic drinks.
- Pack bug spray and don’t forget the sunscreen too!
- Parking is available at Collin College and also at Plano Event Center.
