This past 4th of July the citizens of Freeport had to scramble to raise enough money to ensure fireworks took place in 2018. A new group took over the fireworks last year and  vowed to make sure fundraising would continue throughout the year. One of the biggest complaints people had last year was waiting until the last minute. This and other fun events will be held throughout the year to support Freeport’s annual fireworks celebration.
