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 27th annual Fishers Freedom Festival will be held on Saturday, June 27 & Sunday, June 28 at Holland Park and is always in need of volunteers, sponsors and advertisers.
