I am writing to inform you of the Freedom 4th event that will be taking place at Balloon Fiesta Park on Friday July 4, 2014. We are planning on a great event with local bands, a cultural stage, the Firecracker Café, food vendors, a Microbrew Garden, free Kids’ Activities, Extreme Sports Demonstrations, a Car Show and much more. The musical headliner for the evening will be Wynonna & the Big Noise with a fantastic fireworks display to follow.

The gates for the event will open at 3:00 p.m. and entertainment will begin at 4:00 p.m. Wynonna & the Big Noise will take the stage at 8:00 p.m. and the fireworks show will begin at approximately 9:15 p.m. and last 25 minutes.

We are aware that there will be increased traffic with the Paseo del Norte project and have been meeting with representatives from the City, County and State to minimize the traffic congestion. We are encouraging the use of Park and Ride to avoid the traffic. Please be aware that Jefferson, North of Paseo del Norte, will be closed to general traffic but buses and residents will have access. Edith will be closed North of Alameda Blvd to all but residents and Firecracker Café pass holders. APD and BCSO will be enforcing the closures respectively.

Thank you for your support, and feel free to contact me with any questions.
