LIVE OAK — The City of Live Oak Community Redevelopment Agency is counting down to the 2019 Freedom Festival to be held in downtown Live Oak on July 4.
With entertainment, honors for World War II veterans and current First Responder Reserve Duty members, food and fireworks, the day will be a memorable one for all those who attend.
The Live Oak Police Department will be offering fresh-fried white and sweet potato chips, with various toppings. The Live Oak Fire Department will be grilling up traditional hot dogs and providing cold slices of local watermelon. These sales benefit the departments’ Community Outreach Programs and Charity Projects. There will be two kinds of ice to help attendees keep cool, as well as cotton candy for the children.
The Community Partnership Street Fair begins at 5 p.m., centered at Festival Park with entertainment and recognitions on the Millennium Stage beginning at 6 p.m. Fireworks will light the sky behind the historic Suwannee County Courthouse at approximately 9:30 p.m.
There is still one slot available for an additional food vendor. Anyone interested in participating should contact the CRA at 386-364-4709. There is no fee to participate.
The CRA continues to add names for the honors event. World War II veterans, or the family member of a WWII hero, should contact Police Chief Buddy Williams, the Honors and Entertainment Chair, at 386-362-7436.
