The Visalia Parks and Recreation Foundation has moved the Freedom Celebration to July 3 this year. The event, has been moved a day earlier to allow for a higher quality fireworks show and a return of the band Run 4 Cover as the entertainment.
Additionally, the fireworks program has been altered for safety reasons, and will be even more impressive from inside Giant Chevrolet Cadillac Mineral King Stadium while being less visible to surrounding areas.
The program, which starts at 7pm, will feature Run 4 Cover and, of course, culminate in a fireworks spectacular. The event will be free to the public but a donation of $3 a person is requested to help defray costs. Concessions will be provided by several vendors. Gates open at 6:30pm.
The foundation is actively seeking organizations willing to take over this popular community event. The scope of the event has outgrown the group’s limited manpower resources.
“If your organization or company has an interest in taking over the event, please contact us,” stated a foundation press release. “We will work with you to make a smooth transition and provide you with the support you need to ensure the event exists for years to come.”
