What city in Texas has the largest land-based fireworks show in the United States?

According to Travel Channel, Houston is known to have the largest land-based fireworks show in America with its Freedom Over Texas celebration.

Houston proves that everything is bigger in Texas with the country's largest land-based fireworks show. The annual Freedom Over Texas Fourth of July celebration features six hours of family activities and entertainment, followed by a firework show perfectly choreographed to music. [Travel Channel]

The same website stated that the Freedom Over Texas show is also one of the "best fireworks displays in the U.S.". So I'd say it's a safe bet to plan a trip to the Bayou City if you're wanting to take in a spectacle of a fireworks show.

Locally, there are quite a few Independence Day celebrations, including the Freedom Fest and Clyde's Festival by the Lake, both of which draw people from all over the country.
