The Grand Strand Freedom Festival, scheduled for Sept 11-13 2009, will be hosted by Freestyle Music Park and is organized by BOOST (Business Owners Organized to Support Tourism).
The festival is being held in honor and memory of the victims, families, and first responders of the September 11 2001 tragedy, as well as the men and women who serve in our armed forces. Part of the proceeds from the event will benefit Operation First Response, an organization that supports wounded soldiers and their families.
On Saturday night, September 12, country music sensation Leann Rimes takes the stage at Freestyle Music Park, with additional entertainment provided by Charlie Floyd and Southern Express, Jeffrey Allen Edwards and Southern Blues and Billy Joe Royal.
During the day, Freestyle Music Park will also host a parade featuring the brave men and women of our armed forces, local high school marching bands, Rolling Thunder and an array of police, fire and rescue oriented organizations throughout the park. Highlighting the park will be patriotic exhibits and memorials.
