Fishers Freedom Festival June 27 and 28
The Fishers Freedom Festival announces it will be hosting the 21st Annual Fishers Freedom Festival on Saturday, June 27 & Sunday, June 28, 2009. With over 45,000 attendees from all over the U.S., this free family event hosts hundreds of art & craft sites, business booths, fireworks, 5K Run/Walk, live music, national UFO Major Disc Dog Tournament, children & teen tents, two parades, a Street Dance, food vendors, free games booths, and so much more.
Even though the event is at no charge, the Festival strongly encourages donations of canned foods, baby food, nonperishable goods, disposable diapers, cleaning supplies, school supplies, and/or toiletries for admittance. These items are forwarded to multiple programs which benefit those in need. Multiple drop-off locations will be located throughout the park and will also be collected by Boy Scouts of America Troops during the Main Parade on Sunday.
Back in 1989, the founders of the Fishers Parade and Festival decided to have a community gathering to celebrate Independence Day. With the help of volunteers, the event originated as a one-day community picnic, parade, and a few games for the children. Due to the overwhelming participation by the public, this event grew to a two-day event.
The mission of the Fishers Freedom Festival is to encourage fellowship through civic partnerships and citizen involvement by creating a safe environment, developing needed community services, promoting family integrity and striving to improve the quality of life for every resident by investing in human potential.
The Festival is always in need of volunteers at different levels of participation. For more information on volunteering or about the festival, please visit www.FishersFreedomFestival.org, email firstname.lastname@example.org, visit 8601 East 116th Street in Fishers or call 317-595-3195.
