Southwest Oklahoma’s premier Memorial Weekend Event the “CELEBRATION OF FREEDOM” is headed to the BIG TOP.
This is a new approach to the weekend that expands the number of FREE events, the number of veterans honored and has a greater impact on Hobart and the surrounding area. This May 23-26, 2014, General Tommy Franks Leadership Institute and Museum along with the Hobart Community will hold its 6th Annual Celebration of Freedom. The tradition continues with the Patriot Parade, Wild Hog Fly-In, Motorcycle Poker Run, Oklahoma’s Largest Silent Auction, and downtown festivities all weekend long. However, 2014 ushers in a bolder approach to the celebration with 3 stages featuring a variety of FREE concerts. Complete with a “Battle of the Bands” and “Hobart’s Got Talent”, this event provides an opportunity for everyone to join in. Patriotism is our theme and our brave men and women in uniform will be honored as a part of each and every concert. Hobart’s first annual BBQ Cook-Off is sure to delight your palette, and a variety of activities for children will keep your family hopping. The highlight of the weekend will be an intimate concert under the BIG TOP. With previous acts like Charlie Daniels, Aaron Tippin, Neal McCoy, and Diamond Rio…. You never know who is going to show up for this up-close and personal, unplugged concert event.
