A LOOK Back: 1980’s LibertyFest Parade

LibertyFest has been an Edmond tradition for over 50 years, but Edmond began celebrating the Fourth of July long before the first official LibertyFest in 1973. Edmond’s first documented Fourth of July celebration took place in 1890 when Edmond had a population of less than 300. While some Independence Day celebrations and activities in Edmond over the years have changed, a Fourth of July parade has always been a focal point. These parade photos, dating from the 1980s, illustrate Edmond’s passion for America.
