It's that time of year to celebrate our nation's freedom at Independence Fest, July 4, 2014!
Headlined by KANSAS, who celebrated their 40th year as a band last year, Independence Fest 2014 will continue to build on the success of previous years to be a great day of celebration, and as always, admission and parking are FREE.

In light of recent world events, the Town of Flower Mound is working closely with the police department, fire department and special event organizers to ensure the safety of all who attend any festivals, races and special events.
The Town of Flower Mound Police Department utilizes many off-duty uniformed officers during any special event however, as a precaution; Flower Mound Police will be deploying additional uniformed and undercover officers to supplement those already assigned to the upcoming festivals, races, and events. In addition to the officers, bomb detecting K9 units will be sweeping the area in and around all large public events. No weapons of any kind will be allowed on premises of any festival, race or event.
We are asking for assistance from our citizens. As always all persons should remain vigilant and report anything suspicious to the nearest police officer or call 911. Citizens should follow “If You See Something Say Something” guidelines as outlined by Homeland Security. For additional information on the “See Something” campaign including PSA’s visit:
Furthermore, we are asking special event attendees to keep all packages, bags and backpacks with you at all times. Any unattended package will be highly scrutinized by police and possibly confiscated for safety precautions.
