GREEN — The city of Green’s annual FreedomFest, presented June 29 at Boettler Park, offered area residents an opportunity to celebrate the Independence Day holiday early.

The family-oriented event offered activities for children, food, live music and fireworks and was sponsored by Summa Health System and Legends Sports Pub & Grille, with support also from General RV.

Among the activities at the festival was a display of various aircraft presented by MAPS Air Museum, shown above.

Visitors also were able to keep their cool while enjoying the fun in a misting tent. Shown at right bottom, from left, are Carter Competty, 5, and his sister, Gracen, 8, using the tent.

Shown below is one of the many carnival games set up during FreedomFest.
