Denton County Fourth of July Celebrations

America will celebrate our independence soon, and this is the 247th year! Our rich history of patriots and patriotism is something to be thankful for and celebrate yearly. It’s true that freedom isn’t free, and we can look back at many battles fought to ensure we can wake up daily in the land of the free.
