Freedom Fest packs up after rain soaked night

Concert cancelled after lightening seen in the area

Freedom Fest was cut short Saturday night because of the weather.

Sunday crews tore down the Freedom Fest stage. It’s a process that began overnight and takes as long as 6 hours.

The money from the event will go towards scholarships as well as the Hall of Honor under UW-L’s Veteran’s Memorial Complex.

“We’re looking at ways to how to make it up for the crowd from last night I know we had a lot of Huey Lewis fans in the crowd and would like to do something for them, so we’ll see what the weeks to come bring and try to put something together,” said Pat Stephens one of the Freedom Fest Board of Directors.
