The traditional HEB Austin Symphony July 4th Concert & Fireworks event is scheduled for Thursday, July 4, starting at 8:30 p.m. As is also tradition, scads of people—tens of thousands, according to the Austin Symphony website—are expected to turn out. (The site also has advice on how to get to Vic Mathias Auditorium Shores, as well as other important tips.)
If you want to avoid the traffic and parking nightmare around the big event and don't have friends in high places (a downtown condo, a mansion atop Mount Bonnell), you might find this map of places to watch them helpful.
