Ready for some fireworks? The City of North Port’s annual Freedom Festival, presented by American Irrigation, will kick-off at 5:00 p.m. on July 4, 2022 at CoolToday Park (18800 W Villages Parkway). This family-friendly signature event will include fun activities, great vendors, plenty of food options, and of course, fireworks.

In addition to the stadium concessions inside the ballpark, there will also be a variety of vendors and community organizations providing informational booths stationed along the concourse. Live music will be performed throughout the night featuring the Maiden Cane band. Seating will be available both inside the stadium or outside on the Event Lawn. If watching the Fireworks Show from the Event Lawn, the public is welcome to bring blankets or chairs to enjoy the show. No personal fireworks, sparklers, animals, or stickers will be permitted. Those who prefer to enjoy the show from home will be able to stream it on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/NorthPortParksAndRec.

Free seating and parking are available on a first come, first serve basis (the public is strongly encouraged to carpool). The high-flying fireworks show by Garden State Fireworks will start at 9:00 p.m. weather permitting. The display is expected to end around 9:30 p.m.
