July's soggy beginning messed with several 4th of July celebrations, including Freedom Fest at Lake of the Woods. Well now, you can have a bonus 4th on July 30th.
Gates for the event open at 4 p.m., and it's $2 per person (5 and under free). There will not be the usual entertainment and food, but you can still take the opportunity to bring a picnic and enjoy the park. Fireworks will begin at 9:15 p.m.
