The Arizona Celebration of Freedom 2014 is America’s birthday party -- and you’re invited.
The annual freedom fete highlights plenty of indulgences worthy of a salute, from classic car shows to beer gardens and live performances from bands with names like Rock Lobster and Whiskey Kiss. Displays include a showcase of military vehicles, re-created artifacts from the Revolutionary War, and a chance to “sign” the Declaration of Independence and Constitution. Food tents, kid zones, an art walk, and plenty of misting areas also available.
The city’s celebration includes Revolutionary War re-enactments (on the hour from 7 to 9 p.m.) courtesy of the Mountain Men and featuring replica firearms and canons.
Party patriotic-style from 6 to 10:30 p.m. on Friday, July 4, in and around the Mesa Convention Center, 263 North Center Street. Fireworks are from 9:45 to 10:05 p.m. Admission and parking are free. Call 480-644-2432 or see www.azcelebrationoffreedom.org for details.
Fri., July 4, 6-10:30 p.m., 2014
