It's hard to believe, but July 4th is a week from this Thursday. Time to start planning what events you'll be headed to.

You can kick the week off at the Discovery Center in Amarillo. They will be having their annual Explode event again this year on Tuesday, July 2nd.

The event will last from 6 pm - 9 pm and will feature demonstrations on the science of combustion every half-hour.

According to the event website, attractions, this year include:

 

Water Rockets, Firework Art, Oobleck, Dunk Tank, and more inside and outside of the Discovery Center.

They will also have sidewalk chalk, bubbles, and cornhole outside for everyone to enjoy. Refreshments will also be available.

I went last year, and I know my kiddos would love to go again this year.

You can find more details at the event's website. Tickets are available to pre-purchase up to the day of the event.
