How Far to Austin
DON'T MISS THE "RACING, MUSIC AND FIREWORKS" SPECTACULAR!
Join us for a great day of horse racing and music by day, and the BEST fireworks show you will ever see by dusk. The day’s racing starts at a special post time of 3 p.m. and the racing action will run nearly seamlessly into a spectacular fireworks display that gets underway at nightfall. How Far to Austin, a rock band with a heart made of soul, will be playing live on the band stage in the Park throughout the day and into the evening! Gates will open at 1 p.m.
The amazing fireworks display, which will run more than 30 minutes, will be synchronized to a mixture of patriotic and popular music, and will encompass the entire infield area of the racecourse.
LEGOLAND Discovery Center will be out in the Park with special activities for the kids along with face painters!
Don’t take our word for it, come see for yourselves and check out the video of last year's fireworks show! The first 10,000 in attendance will receive 3D Fireworks Glasses, and the first 1,000 kids will receive a complimentary Firecracker Popsicle.
