We've got music to match the show! There are two music shows that alternate by weekends. We have made it easy by giving you the option to stream the show here from the page!
Follow the steps below to enjoy the show to the fullest! (Note: please check your data availability before beginning a stream or download. The Grapevine CVB is not responsible for cell phone charges for extra data use outside of your standard cellular plan.)
PLAY VIA SOUNDCLOUD
- OPTION 1: If you don't have the Soundcloud app installed, click on the black "Listen In Browser" button. Please allow up to 15 seconds for the song to buffer.
- OPTION 2: If you have the Soundcloud app, click on the orange "Play on Soundcloud" button. The app should automatically open. Please allow up to 15 seconds for the song to buffer.
- The Soundcloud app is free to download for in the Apple and Android stores. It is free to register for an account but is not required to activate the app.
- If you have the app but have not registered an account, the song should still play. You may see a screen that says "create an account" while the song is playing. Click on the button, and then on the next screen click on "cancel" in the corner. This should display the standard playback controls.
Please note that some viewing areas have less cell phone signal than others. It is suggested you check how many bars of service you have and even practice starting the music to see how long it takes to begin playing in the case that buffer times are 30 seconds or longer due to lower cell service signal. We suggest hitting "play" at 9:29 p.m. and then pausing the track to be prepared to hit play once the first shell goes into the air so that the song has appropriate time to buffer.
When you see the first firework go into the air, hit play!! -

ARE THE FIREWORKS SHOT IN THE RAIN?
A: The fireworks can be shot in a very light drizzle. However in moderate or heavy rain, the fireworks show will be delayed as late as midnight or even later in some cases. Please refer to the Visit Grapevine Facebook page for any possible weather updates and timings for the show. Because of how the shells are loaded and charged, it is unsafe for the show operator to disassemble the fireworks. For that reason, the fireworks will always be shot once the rain clears.
CAN I VIEW FROM WHERE THE FIREWORKS ARE SHOT?
A: For safety reasons, the public is not allowed within minimum 200 yards of the fireworks launch area.
WHY ARE THE FIREWORKS NOT VISIBLE IN THE WHOLE CITY?
A: Due to the proximity to the D/FW International Airport and arriving or departing planes, the fireworks can not be shot over a certain height for the safety of air-traffic.
ARE THERE BOAT RESTRICTIONS FOR VIEWING THE FIREWORKS?
A: Viewing fireworks from a boat on Lake Grapevine is one of the best ways to see the show! In fact, you'll see more than 50 boats on the water on any given Friday night. However, the U.S. Coast Guard will keep boats back a certain distance from the fireworks trailer for safety reasons. Please follow all boating laws and observe any instructions from the U.S. Coast Guard.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
A: Typically, you can just watch the fireworks from your car or standing by the water without need for any other items. However, we do recommend to bring bug spray with DEET to repel mosquitos, camping chairs, a flashlight, a snack, beverages, and a bluetooth speaker to stream the show music.
