Alcoa (WVLT) --Today marked the 31st Annual Alcoa Freedom Fest at the Alcoa duck pond.
The event included activities for festival goers of all ages.
Freedom Fest's goal every year is to celebrate America with the community.
"All the activities for children, for the teens, they're all free to do," said Allison Slater, a Marketing Representative for the City of Alcoa. "The only thing you need to bring money for are the food and drinks that you buy. But everything else to do is free, and that's what we strive to do at Freedom Fest is just to have fun and give back to the community."
Alcoa's Freedom Fest housed a children's fun land area, and teen area with laser tag, water wars and a remote control race car track.
Army recruiters and military helicopters were also there alongside the town's duck pond.
The celebration was capped off with a fireworks show after dark.
