(FREETOWN) - Organizers of the annual Freetown July Festival met recently to complete plans for this year's event.

The festival kicks off at 6 p.m. July 13 and finishes with a fireworks display starting at 10:30 p.m. July 14.

New to the festival this year are a costume photo booth and an expanded car show to include anything on wheels.

Additional highlights of planned events include a baby contest, tractor drive, parade, Public Option classic rock band, corn hole tournament and clogging.

"The annual festival has a long running tradition in the Freetown community," Debbie Ridlen of the festival committee said.

"In keeping with tradition, the committee is planning food booths, ice cream, children's games and craft booths to offer festival-goers a fun family experience," she added.

Vendors interested in booth space may contact Janet Smith at 497-3168.
