(Another successful Freedom Fest)…That is according to witnesses and officials.

This year was the 29th annual Freedom Fest held at Imperial Valley College. Official estimates have not been released, but sources say Thursday’s crowd may have been the largest, yet. In the past years Freedom Fest has estimated its crowds at between 50,000 and 60,000 spectators. The pleasant weather is being attributed as one of the reasons for the large turn-out. FM 107.5 annually underwrites the event, partnering with the Imperial Chamber of Commerce and IVC. Over 300 volunteers work towards making the event a success every year.
