Happy July everyone! Smells of chlorine from the pool, and burgers and hotdogs on the grill fill the air. This month comes the day when beautiful red, white, and blue fireworks fill the air. You can find all the best Fourth of July events in our “Guide to Fourth of July in Tarrant County.” It seems as though a lot of organizations are regrouping this month, but don’t fret, if you need more ideas than this post holds, you can check out our other posts on splash pads, VBS, swim lessons, and even tips for a “lazy mom” summer. And check out what’s happening in July across the county . . .
