GRANTSBURG–– The public is invited to a Freedom Festival family fun day at the Grantsburg American Legion Hall on Saturday, July 18.

“The theme for every event or action the Post takes is always the promotion of Americanism, freedom, and service,” commented the event’s coordinator, Duke Tucker. “Music from Bjerke & The Ripsters band will also focus on the same goals as the Post regarding our fundamental purpose and so they will be putting on a patriotic show.”

The day will begin at 7:30 a.m. with an all you can eat breakfast of sausage, eggs, and pancakes available for purchase. A tractor parade will follow at 10 a.m.

Throughout the day there will be both indoor and outdoor activities including, door prizes, a gun raffle (with limited number of tickets sold), raffle baskets and free root beer floats.

Folks can show their American pride by purchasing a custom-made patriotic t-shirt made on site.

Enjoy a pulled pork and beans lunch available for purchase and have a picnic with friends and family outside the hall where there’s plenty of table space.

An outdoor concert (inside the hall if rainy) by Bjerke & The Ripsters will cap off this day of fun for everyone.
