Fort Hood hosts Independence Day Celebration

FORT HOOD, Texas -- Fort Hood's Independence Day Celebration will begin at 6 p.m. July 4 in Hood Stadium located behind the Clear Creek Post Exchange.

Musical entertainment will include a local DJ playing recorded music from 6-8 p.m.

This will be followed by two 1st Cavalry Division Bands performing from 8-9:30 p.m. "Warrior's Call"  will cover rock-n-roll hits and "Crossfire Brass Band" is a brass band covering popular music.

A 30-minute fireworks display will begin at 9:30 p.m.

During the event, food trucks will be selling food and beverages along with family readiness group food and beverage booths and other sponsored booths from 6-9:30 p.m. Alcohol will not be sold during the event.

"While this year's Independence Day event will be reduced in scope and scale compared to previous years' events due to budget uncertainty and need to be good stewards of resources, we will still have the opportunity for our Soldiers and their families to properly celebrate our Nation's independence," said Maj. Gen. Anthony Ierardi, Fort Hood senior commander. "Notably, fireworks for the event will be funded by the money the post residents saved in non-appropriated funds through our recycling program."

Details on post entry, traffic flow and parking proceedures will be released at a later date.
