Let Freedom Ring at Poconos Park
POCONOS, Pa., July 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- This past July 4 weekend, in what will surely become a yearly tradition, the first-ever Let Freedom Ring celebration took place at Poconos Park. The party featured fun for the whole family with live music, food trucks, face painting, bouncy castles, a pie-eating contest, cornhole tournament, beer tents, tractor rides and more. To close out the evening, PP staged one of the most spectacular fireworks shows ever seen at an Independence Day celebration in the region.
"We want our neighbors and visitors to know that we are the premiere Poconos destination for concerts, family fun and beautiful scenery," said John Oakes, proprietor of Poconos Park. "We are excited to provide an opportunity for our community to come together and share our nation's independence, which is why we held this event, and we look forward to doing so in the years to come."
Attendance was higher than expected, with reserved seats and cabanas selling out in advance, and the advance-seat count will be increased for 2024. Poconos Park is grateful to Ertle Subaru, St. Luke's, Wayne Bank, Lehman Township, Lehman Pike EMS, Mama Bears, Sysco, Tamiment, Bushkill Riding Stables, Ertle Powersports, and the Bushkill Volunteer Fire Company for support and sponsorships.
