The General Tommy Franks Leadership Institute and Museum, along with the Hobart community, will hold its 8th annual Celebration of Freedom on June 17 and 18. Celebration of Freedom will feature events of all types, including “Southwest Oklahoma’s Got Talent,” carnival rides, a children's pageant, a 5k Fun Run and Bike Ride, public safety display, food and craft vendors and much more!
The tradition continues with the Patriot Parade, Wild Hog Fly-in, Celebration of Freedom Motorcycle Poker Run & Freedom Ride with General Tommy Franks and Oklahoma’s largest silent auction. Downtown festivities all weekend long provide an opportunity for everyone to join in the fun. The FREE children’s area is sure to keep the family bouncing around Hobart all day long. The Celebration of Freedom is all about patriotism and our brave men and women in uniform will be honored as a part of each and every event.
