(Another successful celebration)…Imperial County Celebrated Independence Day Saturday.
No major incidents were reported. The 25th Anniversary of Freedom Fest was held at the Campus of Imperial Valley College. Early reports are that 50,000 witnessed an outstanding fireworks show in and around the campus. Since attendance is free it is very difficult to come up with an exact count. Organizers did want to thank the approximately 350 volunteers who came together to put on another exciting show. The Imperial Chamber issued a thank-you to the record number of vendors participating in this year’s event. It was once again underwritten by FM 107.5 on behalf of the Imperial Chamber of Commerce for all of Imperial County to enjoy.
