Come downtown Cedar Rapids for the Freedom Festival's Celebration of Freedom! The 4th of July and fireworks are what the Festival was founded upon. With that in mind, we set out to make sure we could get the very best fireworks show possible. The Freedom Festival has grown to offer the Corridor the largest fireworks display in Iowa on the 4th of July! Sit back and enjoy the music of today and yesterday's hits while we put on the show of the year. The fireworks show is choreographed by J&M Displays.

A HUGE THANK YOU to our fireworks sponsor, Rockwell Collins and the Linn County Supervisors.

Activities on the bridges include: Face Painting, Balloon Artist, lots of delicious food and beverages, music, Bungee Trampolines, Inflatable Zone for all ages, military vehicles and exhibits, and so much more!
