Locals bands highlight annual Freedom Fest

The annual Freedom Festival Music & Fireworks Extravaganza is one of the most anticipated local events of the year and the sixth installment will take place on Saturday, July 5 from 3-10 p.m. at 2091 Hwy 109 South between Texas Longhorn and Delta Downs in Vinton, La. Musical performances include local acts Uhnayus, Curse & The Cure, Angel Siren, Stone Blind, All Things Undone, Three Legged Dawg, and Southern Boys Band. There’s no admission fee for this all ages event, which is also a “BYOB” affair, plus there will be concessions.

The Vinton-based rock band Uhnayus will once again host and headline the event. Band lineup includes Hantz brothers David, Jeff, along with Ryan Murdock and the foursome released an album titled Elephant in the Room, which was mastered by four-time Grammy winner. Uhnayus has opened for the likes of Shinedown, Three Doors Down, Fuel, and Sevendust.
