Freedom Fest celebrates Memorial Day

OLDSMAR - They call it Memorial Day for a reason.  It's a time we set aside to remember those who have sacrificed so much through the years for the freedoms we enjoy as Americans today.

The history traces back over 150 years to small towns and villages in both the north and south where those sacrifices were very personal to those communities.  And so it continues today.  

For the sixth consecutive year the Upper Tampa Bay Chamber of Commerce is doing its part by hosting Freedom Fest right on State Street in Oldsmar.  The three-day event, May 23, 24 and 25 will feature live music from start to finish, plenty of food and arts and craft vendors and plenty of fun activities for the kids.

Hours will be 5 to 10 p.m. Friday May 23; noon to 10 p.m., Saturday, May 24; and noon to 8 p.m. Sunday May 25.

The big tent will be back this year to supplement the shade of the beautiful oaks and provide more seating to enjoy the great music.  

The bands include some local and regional heavy hitters featuring Stormbringer, Greg Billings and the Black Honkeys among others.

State Street will be configured to allow the flow of the great American bikes to pass through. Full Throttle Magazine is the presenting sponsor of the event and plans a major bike competition on Saturday.

The show will recognize true American heroes - police, firemen, first responders, active duty and retired military bikers and the grand category military tribute bikes.

Organizers say Oldsmar's Freedom Fest is Tampa Bay's "signature Memorial Day event," and everyone is invited to attend.

Admission is $2, children under 12 admitted free.
