2021 FreedomFest ends with concert, good weather and attendance


This year’s FreedomFest concluded three days of activities Saturday with music by Southern Soul and Sam Mosley and the Muscle Shoals Horns.

Although the crowd size varied, estimates were 300 at least at a time. People were coming and going throughout the evening.

The kids area drew plenty of participation with its Nerf gun battles and a variety of food trucks usually had lines of attendees waiting to order.

A barbecue contest was held earlier in the day with winners to be announced. In the morning, about 125 people participated in Pedaling for Hope to raise money for the Regional Rehab Center and New Albany Main Street. A storyteller presented a program on Choctaw and Chickasaw nations at the Union County Library.

Friday evening, the Magnolia Civic Center presented scenes from Shakespeare interspersed with music on the Riverview Stage.
