Published: Monday, July 1, 2013 at 07:17 PM.

At 8 p.m. the Havelock Community Band is scheduled to take the stage, providing music for about 40 minutes.

Brady said families don’t have to wait until 5 p.m. to enjoy the day at the park.

"A lot of people come out and set up picnic areas and grill food and have their own family reunion all over the park before the Freedom Festival even starts. They’re welcome to do that," Brady said. "Everyone in the surrounding areas is more than welcome to join us in our Freedom Festival. All Craven County, Carteret County and the other surrounding counties are more than welcome to participate."

There is no admission cost. Those attending are advised to bring blankets or lawn chairs to enjoy the day in the park as well as the fireworks.

Brady said sparklers are welcome but other fireworks should be left at home. No animals or alcoholic beverages are allowed.

Traffic in the area is expected to be heavy, and Brady advises drivers to use caution.
