    North Texas event organizers are increasing security in the wake of bombings at the Boston Marathon.

    Fort Worth police wasted no time promising to tighten security for this weekend's Main Street Arts Festival.

    Chief Jeff Halstead issued the following statement on their plans:

    "We are currently reviewing all safety and security plans for the weekend. As with all events, we will work closely with our fire department to ensure a safe event for all attendees, vendors, and residents."

    The Dallas Mavericks also announced increased security for the final two home games at American Airlines Center.

    The Mavs hosted the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday night and will host the New Orleans Hornets on Wednesday night.

    No specific information was released about the increased security.
