Celebrate Independence Day in the oldest town in Texas at the annual Freedom Fest presented by the Nacogdoches Jaycees on July 4th. Families are invited to enjoy delicious festival food, children’s activities and a live musical performance. The evening will culminate in a dazzling fireworks display beginning 30 minutes after dark. Admission is free.
“Freedom Fest has something for the whole family to enjoy from excellent food to show-stopping fireworks,” Bruce Mayberry of the Nacogdoches Jaycees. “What better way to celebrate our nation’s independence than to share it with family and friends at a safe and fun patriotic festival.”
Freedom Fest will take place from 5 to 9:30 p.m. in Festival Park, located just south of the downtown square in Nacogdoches. Guests are encouraged to bring their lawn chairs and blankets. Coolers and picnic baskets are welcome, but glass bottles and alcoholic beverages are not allowed.
