Begins Thursday, June 26
By now, everyone in the state knows that Edmond’s LibertyFest is one of the nation’s top-rated Independence Day events – so says CNN and USA Today. Attracting more than 125,000 visitors annually to partake in the many LibertyFest events isn’t the hard part – organizing a week-plus worth of parades, concerts, food events and more, on the hand, is another feat. LibertyFest 2014 gets underway Thursday, June 26, with the Concert in the Park at Mitchell Hall Theatre on the University of Central Oklahoma campus, 100 N. University Drive, in Edmond. The UCO Summer Band takes the stage at 7:30 p.m. The long weekend continues with the Cardboard Boat Regatta at 6:30 p.m. Friday, June 27 at Arcadia Lake in Edmond Park, and a full slate of fun for Saturday, June 28, to Sunday, June, 28. Look for a rodeo, KiteFest, A Taste of Edmond, Road Rally and more. The fun concludes with a parade, ParkFest and fireworks on July 4. For more, visit www.libertyfest.org.
