Freedom Crossing is putting the free in freedom this weekend. The open air shopping center on Ft. Bliss will be hosting its second Freedom Fest this Friday, May 13, through Sunday, May 15.

The 3-day bash will feature multiple live bands, food vendors, inflatables, a petting zoo, and a fireworks finale on Friday and Saturday night. 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.

The 2nd Annual Freedom Fest event is open to soldiers and civilians alike. All you need is a valid government issued ID, like your driver license, to get on base. No passes will be required.

Freedom Crossing is located on Ft. Bliss at 1611 Haan Road. Click HERE for map and driving directions.
