Gearing up for Market Street Allen USA Celebration!
Allen, Texas may not be as well known as New York City or San Francisco, but we've got an amazing community that is loved by both residents and visitors alike. Nothing makes that quite as clear as the numerous events hosted by the town each year. The 2017 calendar is full of civic events to bring neighbors and tourists together, and the next upcoming celebration is the Market Street Allen USA summer festival. Find out all the pertinent details about Allen's way of welcoming in the new season.
Warming Up for Independence Day
While Market Street Allen USA is a great event in its own right, it's also an early Independence Day celebration held the last weekend in June ahead of the arrival of July. This frees up your schedule for attending other great area events on the 4th itself while getting to see one of the best and largest displays of fireworks in Northern Texas. It also gives Allen the claim to fame for being the first in the area to celebrate July 4th. Why choose between events when you can fit them all in your schedule?
Complete Family Fun
This isn't just a simple street festival to get the community together, although we host plenty of these kinds of events as well. The Market Street Allen USA event is the largest held each year, with up to 80,000 people attending from the entire North Texas region. Everything from nationally known musical acts to water-based splash and spray attractions are included in the celebration. Adults can order their favorite fair foods and healthy concessions as the kids stay busy in the shade at the Craft Tent. There's something for everyone to enjoy from morning to evening.
The Essential Details
Excited about celebrating July 4th ahead of time this year? Mark your calendars for June 25th, 2017 so your schedule is clear for the event.

Celebrating with Papa Lopez Mexican Cantina
As proud members of the Allen, Texas community, we're naturally gearing up for this event ourselves here at Papa Lopez Mexican Cantina. We invite any families headed to the event to stop by here first for a relaxing lunch so the kids don't fill up on cotton candy and other snacks. Drop by during the rest of the summer as well since kids eat free on Mondays and Tuesdays. Combine that deal with our Wednesday dinner specials and dining out can be more affordable than you thought.
