Filled with activities for the whole family and live music, Flower Mound’s annual July 4th event promises to be bigger and better than ever this year.
This year, Independence Fest presented by Market Street will be headlined by legendary classic rock band, Kansas.
Beginning with the popular Children’s Parade and ending 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 Kansas, AC/DC cover band Back in Black and country act Breaking Southwest will also perform on the main stage, thanks to sponsors Cornerstone Staffing, Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Flower Mound, and Northstar Bank of Texas.
“Independence Fest keeps getting bigger and better every year and this year is no different,” said Parks and Recreation Director Chuck Jennings. “You and your family will not want to miss this year’s event with the opportunity to see Kansas for free and our best fireworks display yet. Independence Fest is a great reason for the community to come together and celebrate our country’s freedom and independence.”
Flower Mound’s July Fourth activities will begin with the Children’s Parade from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., where everyone is invited to participate with their festive bikes, trikes, strollers, wagons, and more. Lineup starts at 9:30 a.m. at the corner of Eaton and Timber Creek Road; participation is free.
The parade will conclude at the Lewisville ISD Administration Building, 1800 Timber Creek Road, where attendees can enjoy free hot dogs, drinks, face painting, live entertainment at the free Kid’s Zone. The Kid’s Zone will also include inflatables and bounce houses, a rock-climbing wall, and games for all ages.
