The Nacogdoches Jaycees would like your help with Freedom Fest 2016. Freedom Fest is a fun, safe, family oriented event where we can celebrate our nations independence together as a community. There will be food, games, bounce houses, relays, entertainment and of course FIREWORKS! The cost of the fireworks show is $15,000, and we need your help to fund this spectacular display. The Jaycees will match, dollar for dollar, up to $7,500 dollars for the 2016 Freedom Fest fireworks. Chances are, you have seen this show in years past, either from the square or one of the many parking lots that are filled every year and you know what it means to come together and celebrate Freedom and Independence. This year you have the opportunity be more than a spectator and be a part of the tradition. Make your contribution today and pitch in for a great show! On behalf of the Nacogdoches Jaycees, thank you.
