The Lawton Fort Sill ‘Freedom Festival’ is This Friday and Saturday at Elmer Thomas Park!
The 2022 Lawton, Fort Sill 'Freedom Festival' is coming up this week. This year it will be a 2 day Independence Day bash at Elmer Thomas Park 501 N.W. Ferris Ave. on Friday, July 1st, and Saturday, July 2nd (04-01-22 & 04-02-22). It's going to be an all-American, red, white, and blue, star-spangled good time!
Here's the best part IT'S FREE! That's right it's totally free, there's no charge to get in or for parking, just come out and enjoy two full days of July Fourth activities at the park. Complete with food trucks, vendors, bounce houses, zip line, fun family games, street performers, the "Let Freedom Ring" parade, live music, and of course it wouldn't be the fourth without FIREWORKS! Get ready to celebrate your independence with a BANG!
The fireworks display at Lawton, Fort Sill's 'Freedom Festival' will be one of the largest in S.W. Oklahoma and choreographed to music! Looking forward to that and the concerts scheduled for Saturday (04-02-22). We'll be seeing the 77th Army Band live and Emily Faith will be headlining the Amphitheater Stage that night.
For all the details and listing of daily activities visit the Lawton, Fort Sill 'Freedom Festival' official Facebook page. You're welcome to bring out lawn chairs, blankets, umbrellas, and pop-up tents. Don't forget sunscreen and insect repellant and you can also bring out your picnic baskets as well.
