RIGHT NOW JOE JIMMY YOU MISSED IT. WE HAD THE PLEASURE YESTERDAY OF SIPPING ON A SEGMENT FOR DRINKS BUT WE FEATURED AT THIS WEEKEND’S RIVERWALK FREEDOM FESTIVAL IN MILFORD LET ME TELL YOU THEY WERE ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS. AND ONE OF THEM CHEF HAYES WHO SUPPORT DONNY WITH BEN THE NEW RESTAURANT USED HONEY SERVED TO MAKE A MOCK KALE OMAR. SO GOOD AND THAT WAS JUST A TASTE IF YOU WILL OF WHAT YOU’LL FIND AT MELBOURNE’S LARGEST FESTIVAL. IT’S A FESTIVAL 19 YEARS STRONG AND WHILE THE DEMORALIZED CAVES IT REALLY IS EAGER TO PREVIEW KATIE SEEMINGLY SO HOW COULD I NOT BE FIRED UP ABOUT THIS EVENT. IT’S GOT PATRIOTISM IT’S GOT FOOD IT’S GOT FUN AND IT TAKES PLACE AT SUCH A BEAUTIFUL LOCATION. I’M HERE NOW WITH ALICE ROUSH WHO’S A BOARD MEMBER OF THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE FOR GREATER MY FRIEND YOU GUYS MUST BE SO EXCITED THIS IS SUCH AN EXCITING EVENT. IT’S A BEAUTIFUL DAY. DAN SAYS THE WEATHER’S GOING TO BE GREAT. SO WE’RE REALLY EXCITED THE EVENT TAKES PLACE ON SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 14TH AND THIS IS SORT OF THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM RIGHT NOW BECAUSE REALLY SOON IN THE NEXT PROBABLY 24 HOURS THEY’RE GOING TO START SETTING UP THE AREA WHERE WE’RE STANDING FOR ALL OF THE DIFFERENT ACTIVITIES THAT’LL TAKE PLACE ON SATURDAY TAKE US THROUGH SATURDAY. WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE WHILE THE GATES WILL OPEN AROUND 9 O’CLOCK IN THE MORNING AND THE EVENT SERIOUSLY GOES ON UNTIL PROBABLY ALMOST CLOSE TO MIDNIGHT IT’S A VERY LONG DAY OF SO MANY DIFFERENT ACTIVITIES AND THERE TRULY IS SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE AT 9:00 IN THE MORNING WE HAVE ALL OF THE VENDORS AND THE KIDS CORNER ALL OF THAT STUFF IS BEGINNING AND PEOPLE WILL BE SET UP AND YOU CAN COME AND BRING THE WHOLE FAMILY WALK AROUND SEE ALL THE DIFFERENT SITES. THERE IS A PET PARADE YOU CAN TAKE PART AND THERE’S GOING TO BE A CAR SHOW THAT TAKES PLACE HERE. THERE WILL ALSO BE A BREW GARDEN AND THAT DOESN’T OPEN UNTIL NOON. I THOUGHT 9:00 MIGHT BE A LITTLE TOO EARLY FOR US TO START TALKING DRINKS. WE’LL HAVE LIVE MUSIC. I THINK THERE’S FOUR DIFFERENT BANDS THAT WE’LL BE PLAYING THROUGHOUT THE DAY. THE FIREWORKS OF COURSE ARE THE END OF THE EVENT AND THAT’S AT 8 15 BEFORE THE FIREWORKS THOUGH. IF YOU HAVE A BOAT YOU COULD GET YOUR BOAT ALL DECORATED AND DO THE BOAT PARADE AND THEN LATER ON YOU CAN WATCH THE FIREWORKS FROM YOUR BOAT WHICH IS KIND OF IDEA AMAZING AND TELL ME ABOUT THIS DUCK DASH. YEAH 1 O’CLOCK THERE IS A DUCK DASH. IT TAKES PLACE RIGHT BEHIND ARENAS. THERE WILL BE SEVEN HUNDRED DUCKS THAT ARE PLACED IN THE WATER AND THEN THE OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU TO WIN CATCH ALL THE DUCKS ARE NUMBERED AND YOU PICK THE DUCK AND YOU COULD WIN TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS ALSO THE LEUKEMIA AND LYMPHOMA SOCIETY WILL BE COMBINING FORCES WITH THE RIVERWALK FREEDOM FESTIVAL THIS YEAR AND HAVING THEIR LIGHT THE NIGHT EVENT. AND THEY’LL HAVE A SHORT WALK THAT TAKES PLACE A BEAUTIFUL SIGHT TO SEE AND CERTAINLY A WONDERFUL THING TO SUPPORT. THAT’S GONNA BE AWESOME. OF COURSE THIS IS THE 19TH YEAR AND AFTER THE FIRST YEAR YOU GUYS KIND OF CHANGE TO MAKE IT INTO THE FREEDOM FEST. WE’LL TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THAT. YES. WHILE THE FIRST YEAR IT TOOK PLACE IT WAS JUST A FALL FESTIVAL EARLY SEPTEMBER FOUND TIME TO COME OUT FOR THE FAMILY. THE NEXT YEAR 18 YEARS AGO WAS 9/11 AND AT THAT TIME WE DIDN’T FEEL LIKE A FULL CELEBRATION WAS FITTING SO WE CHANGED THE THEME TO BE THE RIVERWALK FREEDOM FESTIVAL THAT YEAR TO SORT OF SUPPORT PATRIOT’S DAY AND GIVE THE COMMUNITY A TIME TO SUPPORT EACH OTHER AND JUST BE THERE FOR EACH OTHER. RIGHT AFTER 9/11. SO IT’S EVOLVED SINCE THEN AND LIKE YOU SAID 19 YEAR NEXT YEAR WILL BE 20 YEARS. ABSOLUTELY SO WHO BENEFITS FROM THIS EVENT WHERE THE PROFITS GO. WELL THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE FOR GREATER MILFORD DOES BENEFIT FROM IT BUT THEN ABOUT A THIRD OF THE PROFITS ACTUALLY GO TO DIFFERENT NONPROFITS IN MILFORD COMMUNITY. SO WE’RE ABLE TO GIVE BACK WE EXPECT 5000 TO 7000 PEOPLE HERE ESPECIALLY WITH THE WEATHER BEING NICE. SO WE’RE LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT. THAT’S GOING TO BE AWESOME. IF ANYBODY’S YOU KNOW NEVER COME OUT TO THE EVENT WHY WOULD YOU SAY MAKE IT HAPPEN. I WOULD SAY THERE’S TRULY SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE. I MEAN IF YOU HAVE YOUNG DANCE THERE’S GOING TO BE A DANCE PERFORMANCE THAT I DIDN’T MENTION EARLIER. HEY IT’S WE THE DIFFERENT THINGS THAT ARE GOING ON ON OUR SOCIAL MEDIA PAGES TO KEEP TRACK OF ALL THE THINGS BUT THERE’S JUST TRULY SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE WHO COULD DO PADDLE BOAT RIDES SOMETHING FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY. EVERYONE CAN HAVE FUN. THAT’S THE DAY THAT ENDS IN FIREWORKS IS ALWAYS A GOOD DAY. ABSOLUTELY AND THIS IS THE ONLY FIREWORKS SHOW IN MILFORD.
