Past performers have included Grammynominated country duo Brothers Osborne, Rick Springfield, LOVERBOY, and fan-favorite disco band Le Freak. The event features children’s activities, children’s parade, classic car show, vendors, food trucks, then all capped off by one of the biggest fireworks shows in North Texas. The annual Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting Ceremony (flower-mound. com/parade) is a magical experience in Flower Mound. Marvel at lighted floats during the nighttime parade, enjoy live entertainment, photos with Santa, a petting zoo, and other family-friendly activities.

Tale of the Mound

Photo by: Meredith Weldon

Flower Mound derives its name from an actual landmark that has as many legends attached to it as Texas has tall tales. The Mound rises 650 feet above sea level and stands 50 feet above the surrounding countryside. While there are few unchallenged facts about this natural wonder, Texas’ eminent historian, the late A.C. Greene, believed it received its name in the 1840s because of an unusual amount of wildflowers that grew on it. This area was part of the great American Blackland Prairie that ran from Canada to the Rio Grande and from the Rockies to the Mississippi. Only 1,000 acres remain of the original 20 million known as the Tall Grass Prairie. The 13 acres was deeded to the non-profit Mound Foundation in order to preserve the land in its natural state forever. Located at the intersection of FM 2499 and FM 3040, legend suggests this was a sacred Indian burial ground and Mother Nature abided with strong winds to prevent any structure from being built there (flower-mound.com/mound).
