What Do You Get When You Have Firefighters Create A 4th of July Festival?

June 28, 2017

What do you get when you have a bunch of Volunteer Firefighters who want to create a safe event for families to celebrate the 4th of July? The Firefighters Freedom Festival.

The Madison County Fire Department consists of 180 volunteer members who are responsible for providing fire safety education to school children, civic groups and businesses throughout Madison County. This group saw a need to provide education and develop additional programs with the focus of reducing fire related injuries and deaths throughout our community especially during the 4th of July holiday.

In response, they decided to put together a free, family oriented festival and Fourth of July Fireworks. They have organized the event, scheduled the activities for children, arranged food concessions and even thought about the porta-johns. Join the Madison County Fire Department 3:00 pm, Tuesday, July 4, 2017 at McKellar-Sipes Regional Airport, 308 Grady Montgomery Drive, Jackson, TN 38301 to celebrate!

The Opening Ceremony begins at 5:00 pm. Live music rooted in the rich West Tennessee tradition will begin at 5:30 pm with Audrey Geisel, and is followed at 6:45 pm The Genre Band taking the stage. Fireworks are planned for dusk.

A special “Thank You” to Stage Sponsor: Paul Davis Restoration.
