Continuing the tradition, the Town of Flower Mound will celebrate July Fourth with its annual signature event, Independence Fest, headlined by popular rock band Loverboy, best known for smash hits “Working for the Weekend”, “Lovin’ Every Minute of It”, and “This Could Be the Night.”
Independence Fest, presented by Market Street, truly has something for the entire family making it the perfect way to celebrate our nation’s freedom.
Beginning with the popular Children’s Parade and concluding with a spectacular fireworks finale, Independence Fest will also feature a vintage car show presented by Time Machine Car Shows, a showcase of local businesses, and a variety of delicious food vendors. In addition to Loverboy, the self-proclaimed “greatest disco band in the world” Le Freak will also perform on the main stage, along with Joan Jett tribute band, Cherry Bomb. Special thanks to our main stage sponsors: DATCU Credit Union and Children’s Advocacy Center of Denton County.
“Put on your red, white, and blue Monday, July Fourth and come help Flower Mound celebrate our country’s independence,” said Parks and Recreation Director Chuck Jennings. “In keeping with tradition, the Town has lined up three great bands to entertain you throughout the evening and will conclude with a spectacular fireworks finale.”
