Celebrating its tenth anniversary, the Titan Solar Power Arizona Celebration of Freedom, held Thursday, July 4 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., is the can't-miss Independence Day festival in the state. Here are the Top 10 reasons why you should be in downtown Mesa on the Fourth of July:If it reaches 100 degrees on July 4, admission is FREE! If we get lucky, and it's under 100-degrees, admission is FREE! Lasers. That's right we have lasers. Get your "Introduction to Lasers" with three shows featuring spectacular laser displays, photos and music inside the Mesa Convention Center. The Celebration of Freedom is a salute to all things free (including admission) but mostly America! Inside the fabulously air-conditioned Mesa Convention Center will be the Hall of U.S. Flags featuring the banners of all 50 states, the Fallen Soldiers Memorial, America's Arts & Culture Showcase and Titan Solar Power Charities. Beat the heat with KOOL Zones sponsored by KOOL-FM located throughout the event and chase your soaking wet children through the Splash Zone featuring inflatable waterslides, including a giant waterslide for kids of all ages. What's better than a stage with live music? TWO stages with live music. Check out Shallow Water and The Hamptons performing on Stage America presented by TALIS Corporation and Autopilot and Troubleman as they headline the Mesa Music Festival stage presented by Republic Services. BMX bikes are back! The stunt shows are packed with amazing stunts and jumps and topped off with a grand finale that doesn't include fireworks but will have you ooh-ing and aah-ing at the sky. See if the 13 Colonies can break free from British rule during three Revolutionary War reenactments from We Make History. SPOILER ALERT: We win, yay America!! But wait, there's more! Beer stands, food trucks, beer stands, games, beer stands and Instagram worthy photo opps like the USS Arizona replica, military vehicle displays and inflatable monuments. Also, there will be beer stands. Belly up to the free water bar, hosted by Mesa Water Resources. We want you to stay hydrated, but this bar is BYOB, Bring Your Own Bottle. Refill whenever you need, including at the water fountains in Independence Hall. Cap off the most patriotic day of the year at 9:20 p.m. with the Salute to America program at Stage America presented by TALIS Corporation. Then turn your attention to the sky above downtown Mesa as we celebrate freedom with a spectacular fireworks extravaganza featuring the grandest finale in the 10-year history of the event. AMERICA!
