The Greater Darlington Chamber of Commerce is celebrating Independence Day at Darlington Raceway! Freedom Fest festivities include children’s activities, a car show, fireworks display, and live entertainment. Admission is free. Festivities begin 4-10pm.
Some of the night’s plans include a Cruise-In sponsored by Raceway Ford and Chevrolet, in which the participants will take a lap around the “Lady in Black.” The Festival will also boast a Kids Zone full of bounce houses, bounce obstacle courses, a rock climbing wall and more! Darlington County Sheriff Wayne Byrd and his deputies also plan to bring the department’s K9 Unit, will be offering to finger print children, and will be displaying tactical vehicles, including a 21 foot boat, an MRAP armored vehicle, jet skis, and patrol cars. Sherriff Byrd comments, “It’s a great family event and we look forward to it growing bigger and better this year.”
As an added bonus to the event’s already stellar reputation, this year the nationally known and beloved group Sister Hazel has signed on to be the headlining act for Freedom Fest 2015.
Music will fill the air throughout the entire evening. Radio personalities from 103X (WJMX 103.3) and Eagle 92.9 (WEGX 92.9) will be broadcasting live from Darlington Raceway. We are also excited to have local favorites: Noah Stanley, Consumed, and Morgan’s Road open up the stage leading up to Sister Hazel’s performance. The chamber also plans to spotlight our military with special appreciation events. The evening is scheduled to end with the most spectacular fireworks show in all of the Pee Dee. East Coast Pyrotechnics will be filling the night’s sky with a brilliant, beautiful display that will last over 20 minutes.
