Freedom Crossing will be putting the free in freedom again this May.

The open air shopping center on Ft. Bliss will be hosting its second Freedom Fest Friday, May 13 through Sunday, May 15. The free 3-day event will feature multiple live bands, food vendors, carnival games, kiddie rides and many other family-friendly activities.

Friday and Saturday night's festivities will end with a fireworks show.

And here’s the best part: admission is free, all activities are free, and all the entertainment is free. Pretty much all you have to pay for is what you want to eat and drink.

Freedom Crossing's 2nd Annual Freedom Fest will be open to soldiers and civilians alike. No passes will be required to get on base.

The schedule of events is still pending, but I'll be sure and update you as soon as I get word.
