With Independence Day right around the corner, many towns are gearing up for festivities to help and celebrate the holiday. One celebration that will get underway this coming weekend is the Arthur Freedom Fest.
19 years ago the town of Arthur turned to Mark Jones in order to keep the festival alive.
Jones holds the role of Creator and Producer of the Arthur Fireworks, as he explains the growth of the fest over the years has been eye-opening.
With this year's big budget and the growing popularity of the event, there is much anticipation for this year's firework display.
Jones says while everyone enjoys the big firework show, the Arthur community and lifestyle brings back a nostalgic feel.
The Arthur Freedom Festival gets underway this Saturday. More information on the fest can be found at arthurfestivals.com.
