Fireworks! It's that time of year to celebrate our nation's freedom at Independence Fest, July 4, 2014, presented by Market Street!

Independence Fest 2014 will also host performances by other musical groups including Back in Black and Breaking Southwest; plus a vintage car show presented by Time Machine Car Shows, a showcase of our local businesses, food and drinks for the whole family, and a completely FREE Kid's Zone complete with bounce houses, face painting, and more.
The Children's Parade will take place from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the LISD School Administration Building; with line-up beginning at 9:30 a.m. There will be hot dogs prepared by The Summit Club, Clowns, Bouncehouses, slides, vendors, and more. Please visit the Children's Page for more information.
