South Salt Lake Freedom Festival
A two day celebration, the South Salt Lake Freedom Festival is a favorite Independence Day tradition for locals and visitors. The night of July 3 enjoy a carnival with live music, booths, food and fireworks. There is no admission fee for the carnival, and most of the activities are free. Longtime South Salt Lake residents talk of memories of the fireworks displays, and how they look forward to climbing to the highest point they can, many on rooftops, to watch the fireworks display. The morning of July 4, enjoy a 5K fun run/walk at Fitts Park, followed by the annual 4th of July parade.
