There is nothing quite like experiencing Freedom Fire inside Utah State University’s stadium, according to Holly Fjeldsted. Fjeldsted has served as executive producer of Logan City’s Independence Day celebration over the last 15 years.
Fjeldsted says it still gives her goosebumps because it is such a great patriotic event for the community.
This year, she says not only will the event be honoring our nation’s 240th birthday, but also Logan’s sesquicentennial, its 150th birthday.
She says there will be a flashback to our roots and that means our farmers are going to be honored because they were the early stewards of our great land.
Fjeldsted says, of course, our military people, those who have served in the nation’s armed forces, will also be honored at the event on Friday, July 1st.
“The show is going to be unbelievably entertaining,” she says. “We have three musical acts that are going to be performing. A Journey cover band is coming, Journey Unlimited. We also have Caleb Chapman’s Crescent Super Band. They are just incredible.
“They have about 25 young, talented musicians who play brass instruments, drums, keyboards, guitars. They sing current hits all the way to jazz classics.”
Fjeldsted says the lasers that were such a hit last year are coming back. The big excitement comes at the end, she says, with those incredible fireworks by Logan’s own Fireworks West.
