2017 report: 

On Saturday July 1, 2017, Downtown Odessa Inc. hosted the 22nd annual Firecracker Fandango, a free Independence Day festival. The festival saw over 4,000 attendees.

Firecracker Fandango is Odessa’s longest-running patriotic street festival and one of Downtown Odessa, Inc.’s largest fundraisers of the year. All sponsorship dollars go toward event costs and 100% of profit from the event funds revitalization projects for Downtown Odessa. 

Festivities began at 10 a.m. with an Odessa tradition, the Odessa Jaycees' 68th Annual Independence Celebration Parade . Later at 5 p.m., the gates for the 22nd annual Firecracker Fandango opened. The family-friendly street festival featured live bands and entertainment, children’s activities, food booths and much more.


The highlight of the evening and the closing of the event was a professional fireworks display, which was choreographed to patriotic music and broadcast live on two Odessa radio stations. The fireworks were launched over Downtown Odessa and viewed annually by more than 40,000 people.
