Each community is known for various traditions and Mud Volleyball at the annual 4th of July “Freedom Fest” celebration is one of Florence’s. Deadline to register a team is Friday, June 22nd for only $75. This coed tournament is as much fun to watch as it is to participate. Freedom Fest starts with open swim at the Florence Aquatic Center from noon until 5:00 p.m. Admission is a new backpack or school supplies such as pencils, paper, crayons and glue. The event shifts to Heritage Park at 5:00 p.m. with several activities planned including Mud Volleyball and Cornhole Tournaments, bingo and inflatables for the kids. The Laura Walsh Band will entertain the crowd from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., followed by the spectacular fireworks display.
