Fireworks, music, kids’ activities and food vendors will highlight the Freedom Festival slated for 5 to 10 p.m. Saturday, June 27, in downtown Jefferson. The fireworks show will begin around 9:30 p.m.
“Kiddieville,” sponsored by Jackson EMC and the Jefferson Area Business Association, will include inflatables and “much, much more,” said Main Street Jefferson director Beth Laughinghouse. “This is probably going to be our biggest festival to date.”
Mark Garrison and family will perform from 5 to 7 p.m. BlueBilly Grit, a Jackson County-based bluegrass band, is also on the music list for the evening. The Shade, including Jefferson resident Mark Starnes, along with three friends, will be on the lineup with classic rock and roll.
Food vendors will offer barbecue, hotdogs, hamburgers, bratwurst, ice cream, cotton candy, fried pickles, watermelon, boiled peanuts and more.
“The fireworks promise to be the best ones ever,” Laughinghouse said. “Bring your chairs and your family and friends and join us downtown for all the fun.”
