      Sherwood Baptist Church is holding its 7th Annual Freedom Festival. The family event has live music, inflatable jumpers, and horse rides all to celebrate Independence Day.

      Event coordinators expect over 15,000 people to show up to the fun day.

      A few of the major draws are para-troopers diving from the sky and fireworks to culminate the night. Organizers said it's all about bringing people together.

      "The importance of the day is for us to gather as a community and remember the sacrifices that were made for us by the people that came before us, which secures our freedom and most importantly that freedom that we have for Jesus Christ," said Freedom Festival event coordinator Ken Bevel.

      The event is free to the public.
