Piedmont Freedom Fest parade kicks off at 5

By Amanda Elrod

The Piedmont Freedom Fest has something for everyone this year and can fill your day with many activities to help celebrate our nation’s birthday. Come join us on July 4 at Piedmont Elementary School for the annual Independence Day Freedom Fest.

Evening activities begin at 5 p.m. with local vendors located at Piedmont Elementary School offering a wide variety of food, crafts, inflatables, face painting and pony rides. The Freedom Fest Parade will kick off at 7 p.m. with popular Oklahoma country artist, Kylie Morgan, performing at 8 p.m. The firework display will begin at dark and end the day’s events with a beautiful show of patriotism.

Piedmont’s Mayor Valerie Thomerson said, “I look forward to the Freedom Fest every year. I always enjoy the strong feeling of community, coming together and having fun, the kids, the candy, but mostly the fireworks. The 4th of July is a time to celebrate, as a nation, our independent nature, our willingness to take a stand and be counted for something worthwhile and it is about our collective will to fight against tyranny and oppression.”
