Threatening weather doesn’t stop FreedomFest

HUMPHREYS GARRISON — Despite the threatening weekend weather, July 3 and 4, both Koreans and Americans came to the aptly named Independence Park, here, to experience the U.S. Independence Day activities and the third Republic of Korea-U.S. Friendship Music Festival, at FreedomFest. Although the weather and some technical difficulties did prevent headliner, Sevendust, from performing, there was plenty of traditional Korean entertainment, including the Korean Ministry of National Defense Philharmonic Orchestra, which played before and after the fireworks. The weekend opened with a 5K Run, along with a One Mile Run/Walk for the kids in the Soldier Field area. Starting at 3 p.m. each day, there were free blowups and games available. Various units, Family Readiness Groups and organizations sold a variety of food on the Midway.
