Posted on 6/22/2017 7:26:00 AM.

(Seguin) -- A band that's well known in the area is set to perform at this year's Freedom Fiesta in downtown Seguin. The Broken Duckfeet band will provide all of the entertainment for this year's event.
 
Freedom Fiesta is a community-wide Fourth of July weekend celebration, that's hosted each year by Seguin Radio KWED. Darren Dunn, general manager of KWED and the Seguin Daily News, says that he's excited about Broken
Duckfeet taking the stage in Central Park.
 
"This year, we will have a tremendous act that will be performing. They're going to put on a fantastic show. It's a popular band from this area, Broken Duckfeet Band. They're well known around this area. They have a strong following of both their performances and through social media. So we expect a great performance. They are going to do a mixture of country music and rock and roll music and it's just good stuff, good family stuff that folks will come out to Central Park and enjoy and really have a great time and it's going to set the tone just right for this year's Freedom Fiesta," said Dunn.
 
The music is just one reason to come to Freedom Fiesta, but Dunn says there's a whole lot more for people to experience that weekend. Dunn says people love Freedom Fiesta, because it's a fun homecoming for the entire community.
 
"The Fourth of July weekend is always an exciting time in Seguin. This year will be no exception. Freedom Fiesta will kick off a four day celebration in Seguin. We think that we've got something special for everyone. Number one, it's
free. It's a community event. It's an opportunity for everyone to come together. It's a homecoming for many as folks come back into town for Freedom Fiesta and all of the other Fourth of July activities so we expect Central Park to be
packed -- full of folks just having a good time listening to some great music and enjoying what the Fourth of July really means to a strong community like Seguin," said Dunn.
 
Freedom Fiesta runs from 6 p.m. to midnight on Saturday, July 1 in Central Park. Local non-profit groups and churches will be selling food and drinks throughout the evening. Several other commercial vendors will also be set up around the park. There will be games for the kids, and this year's Freedom Fiesta will once again kick off with the annual Kiddie Parade sponsored by the Guadalupe County Republican Women.
 
Several generous sponsors have contributed to Freedom Fiesta '17 to make sure that it remains a free event. The list of sponsors this year includes GRMC, Texas Lutheran University, GVEC, Chuck Nash Pre-Owned Seguin, Bertling
Equipment Rental, Seguin Main Street, The Koehler Company, Tri-City Distributors, Seguin Chevrolet, Tri-County Air Conditioning & Heating, D & D Texas Outfitters, CMC Steel Texas, Town & Country Collision Repair, Apache Disposal and First Commercial Bank.
 
"I hope that people will take note of these sponsors. The companies and organizations stepped up in a big way to support an important community celebration that's been going strong since 1967. If you run across any of these folks, make sure you say thank you for supporting our community," said Dunn.
