FreedomFest 2014

FreedomFest 2014

Our little town throws a great 4th of July festival called FreedomFest.  It gets better every year, and to be honest, I’m happier there every year because Greenwood feels more and more like home.  It’s so fun to spend the holiday with so many friends…and this year all my family was there too!
We started our morning off with the 5K.  We did a pretty good time for walking it…we actually ran like 1/3 of it and finished in 45 minutes.  We were hoping to win the costume contest…but we didn’t. 🙁
After the race, we played around FreedomFest.  The kids played in the inflatables, we took a hayride, a trolley ride, and listened to the music.
We went home and rested a bit, and then we went back to the square for the evening festivities.
 Luke is such a ham!
The community donates tons of stuff for the event- they gave out free glowsticks, 3D glasses (to watch the fireworks through), flags, hot dogs, and more!
And then they put on a great fireworks show!  There were a couple rogue fires, but they still had a great show.
It was awesome to have all my people there.
Hope you had a great 4th!  We sure did!

  1. That looks like a lot of fun. It’s a good idea to wear 3D glasses when watching fireworks. I had never thought of that before. Sounds like you had the perfect 4th!
