Texas summers are so relaxing. The heat slows the pace of the daily shuffle, and the sunshine brightens moods. Some Texans look forward to summer all year, and then it’s over in the blink of an eye. Pack your summer with fun at these awesome Lewisville summer events. They’re all coming up quick, so grab a friend and start making plans.
Sounds of Lewisville: Every Tuesday in June and July
The Sounds of Lewisville summer concert series is a weekly event that takes full advantage of the beautiful summer evenings. Starting at 7 p.m. and rocking for two hours, the free concert features a different band each week and is fun for all ages. You can make a full evening of it and visit one of the downtown restaurants before the show, or you can keep it casual by purchasing food or drinks from the vendors that will be servicing the event each week. There is no seating provided at Wayne Ferguson Plaza, so bring your favorite picnic blanket and get comfortable on the grass.

Friday Family Matinee: Every Friday in June and July
Take a break from the sun and visit the Lewisville Public Library. At 2 p.m. every Friday in June and July, the library will host a screening of a popular movie that everyone in the family will enjoy. Each week is a new film you won’t want to miss. The event is free of charge, and no registration is required, so gather up the whole crew for a cool afternoon in the library. On your way out, browse the shelves for a few books or sign up for some other library events to keep you busy until you come back for the next week’s matinée.
Freedom Festival 2017: July 4
Dress in your red, white, and blues and get ready to celebrate Independence Day in Lewisville. The Village Shops and Plaza are the perfect lakeside location for the free activities like bounce houses, face-painting, balloon artists, and a giant water slide. Many local food trucks will park nearby to offer their best concessions to the festive family crowd. Find a lakeside spot to lay your blankets or chairs and get ready to cheer along with the crowd at dusk when the fireworks display lights up the Texas sky.
