Come enjoy Fort Hood’s fireworks display and Independence Day Celebration.

Thursday’s celebration is from 6 to 10 p.m. at Hood Stadium, located behind the Community Events and Bingo Center on Clear Creek Road.

There will be a DJ spinning the hits, two 1st Cavalry Division Bands performing for the crowd — “Warrior’s Call” covering rock-n-roll hits and “Crossfire Brass Band” covering popular music. There will be various food and beverage vendors selling food and drinks.

Capping off the events’ activities will be a 30-minute fireworks display choreographed to patriotic music.

This event is free and open to the public. Individuals requiring special accommodations due to disability should contact (254) 286-5342.

Prohibited items include explosive weapons, firearms, knives, clubs, brass knuckles, glass containers (except baby bottles), pets, alcohol and fireworks. Permitted items: strollers, small coolers (for baby formula), camelbacks (will be searched), umbrellas, blankets, lawn chairs and small wagons.
