Clever Freedom Celebration

Saturday, June 27 at 9:30 p.m.
This year’s Freedom Celebration might look a little different than it has in years past, but the show must go on! The Clever Chamber of Commerce will be shooting off a firework display from Clever High School. It will be high enough in the sky that people in surrounding neighborhoods can see from their homes, or anyone is welcome to come out to the high school for a better view. There won’t be any vendors or entertainment this year, and the city is just asking everyone to social distance.

Willard Freedom Fest

Saturday, June 27 at 9:45 p.m.
Spend your Saturday night watching an array of fireworks without even leaving your porch. For 15 minutes, a display will take place on the east edge of Willard, and everyone is encouraged to stay home and shoot off your own fireworks to be part of a city-wide celebration. Due to social distancing restrictions, the annual gathering in the park has been cancelled.
