Angleton, TX revamps firework show,
launches Freedom Festival
City of Angleton is looking for vendors to round out the new
Angleton, Texas, April 27, 2015 - To
allow for more space, and more fun, organizers of Angleton’s annual Freedom
Fireworks changed the location, changed the set-up and now are looking for
vendors to round out the new event.
"Organizers are planning a 12-hour day packed with food, family activities and
shopping at the Brazoria County Fairgrounds, followed by fireworks," said Martha
Eighme, tourism and special events coordinator.
"Usually held at Freedom Park, last year’s show was a huge hit, but people were
packed into the area around the park. With a new apartment complex opening up
close by, it was time to look into alternatives," Eighme said. “We started
looking at different options, and expanding the event. We already do Market Days
and have great success with that, so it just made sense to move it to the
Fairgrounds,” she said.
Freedom Festival will be held from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. June 27, the Saturday before
July 4th, and will have vendors, food trucks and a kids’ zone. They are also
looking to have dance studios and local talent perform to make it more enjoyable
for the entire family. At 9:20 the fireworks show will begin.
About 90 Vendors have reserved a space at the Festival with calls coming in
daily. “While most of our vendors will be in one of the three
air-conditioned buildings, we have vendors who are requesting outdoors spaces as
well” says Eighme.
It shouldn’t be hard to find enough vendors to keep people occupied throughout
the day either. Angleton’s annual Market Days, held in the spring and fall, has
a loyal following of vendors who are excited and eager about making another trip
during the year, but the City is always looking for great new vendors.
Eighme hopes that the expansion of this community event will lift the City’s
effort to boost tourism and make Angleton a destination town for its shows and
Market Days. “People coming from all over is always the goal,” she said. “I’ve
heard from so many people that our pyrotechnic show is the best around – you
won’t want to miss it!”
