This year, we will be celebrating twenty years of community spirit on June 28-29, 2008 at Roy Holland Memorial Park.  This year’s event will include activities and events for the entire family starting with the 5k walk/run on Saturday morning at 8:00 a.m. and will conclude on Sunday with a fabulous firework show beginning at dusk.  A new feature this year will be a lumberjack show both days.  The event also features live entertainment all weekend showcasing “Zanna-Doo” on Saturday night at 7:00 p.m. and “The Late Show” on Sunday starting around 6:30 p.m. before the fireworks display.

Back in 1989, the founders of the Fishers Parade and Festival decided to have a community gathering to celebrate Independence Day.  With the help of volunteers, the event originated as a one-day community picnic, parade, and a few games for the children.  Due to the overwhelming participation by the public, this event grew to a two-day event.

The mission of the Fishers Freedom Festival is to encourage fellowship through civic partnerships and citizen involvement by creating a safe environment, developing needed community services, promoting family integrity and striving to improve the quality of life for every resident by investing in human potential.
