The Spirit of Texas Independence Day

Texas Independence Day is a significant state holiday celebrated on March 2nd, marking the day in 1836 when Texas declared its independence from Mexico and became a republic. It's a day imbued with pride, reflecting on the Lone Star State's rich history, cultural heritage, and the indomitable spirit of its people. Traditionally, this day is celebrated with lively festivals, parades, historical reenactments, and educational events that honor Texas' heroic past and its journey to becoming a proud state of the United States.
