MOSES LAKE — Celebration of the country’s 243rd birthday continues today and tomorrow in Moses Lake; Freedom Fest ends with a bang – as in fireworks – tomorrow night.

Freedom Fest is sponsored by the Moses Lake Chamber of Commerce, the Moses Lake Farmers Market and Samaritan Healthcare.

Activities start tonight with a food truck rodeo from 4 to 10 p.m. at McCosh Park, in the parking lot next to the tennis courts. A beer and wine garden is planned as well, from 5 to 10 p.m. in McCosh Park near the amphitheater.

With the food and spirits will come some music. The rock and blues band Lake City Blues will be on stage from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., and Fastlane: A Celebration of the Eagles will perform from 8 to 10 p.m. Fastlane is based in the Tri-Cities.

The Moses Lake Farmers Market will be open for its regular Saturday hours, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., at its regular spot in McCosh Park. The food trucks will be open all day, beginning at 9 a.m. and closing around the time of the fireworks at 10 p.m. Vendors will be in the park all day, opening at 10 a.m.

The “Cruiz-In Car and Bike Show” will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at McCosh Park. It’s open to cars, trucks and bikes – and that’s pretty much the only criteria, according to the entry form. Three trophies will be awarded, best in show, people’s choice and participants choice. Awards will be presented to three winners in each category. The show is sponsored by Les Schwab Tires in Moses Lake, along with CF Moto and Wolfpack Powersports.

The beer and wine garden will be open from 5 to 10 p.m. Saturday.

Pasco-based Cruise Control takes the amphitheater stage from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Saturday. The band plays classic rock, pop and country-rock hits from the 1950s through the 1980s.

Presentation of the colors is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at the amphitheater.

The Sonic Funk Orchestra, from Seattle, will perform from 8 to 10 p.m. The band’s website describes it as “the ultimate horn-driven party machine showband.” As the name implies, the band highlights the funk sounds of the 1970s, along with a celebration of disco. “They play a lot for the Seahawks,” said Lori Robbins of the chamber of commerce.

The evening ends with a fireworks show at about 10 p.m.
