Fourth of July is right around the corner. And that means the annual Freedom Fest at Fort Rucker is back. But this year, there are some changes because of budget cuts.
Fort Rucker partnered with Daleville, Dothan, Enterprise and Ozark to help keep the tradition alive.
Col. Stuart McRae, Garrison Commander Fort Rucker said, “It has just been a great opportunity for us to work closely with our local communities, tighten those bonds that we have and to still be able to perform and present this opportunity to our local populous at no cost to the army this year.”
Festivities will start on July 3rd at 4 p.m. complete with the area’s largest fireworks show. It is free and open to the public. It will last until about 10 p.m. But no backpacks, coolers, weapons or pets will be allowed.
