First Annual Freedom Fest Supports Iowa Soldiers

Posted June 26, 2014 in Adel, Community Web Exclusives, Waukee

Families can have fun and support Iowa soldiers at the first annual Freedom Fest August 2, 2014.

The event begins with a free will lunch hosted by Park Place Catering from 11:00am – 2pm.

A carnival outside the hall, located at 1015 Riverside Drive in Adel, will also begin at 11:00am. Sponsors are providing games for children, a dunk tank, and a rock climbing wall. Adults can treat themselves to a free will chair massage.

The day will end with a Freedom Dance from 7:30–11:00pm.

Organizer Brenna Young said, “I wanted to do something to help the warriors that fight for this country, but I wanted to keep it local. The money will be used for Iowa’s soldiers and to help their families and kids.”

Young, the owner of Park Place Catering, at first planned to host just a lunch and a dance. However, local businesses and organizations wanted to support her fundraising efforts. Local schools and Boy Scout troops have volunteered to help at the festival, and vendors from Adel and all over the metro area have stepped up as sponsors.

“My small vision is now turning into a big vision,” said Young. “I can’t wait to see what happens August 2.”
