Area freedom celebrations need volunteers


CHAMPAIGN COUNTY, Ill. (WCIA) — Champaign County Freedom Celebration organizers are looking for volunteers for this year’s festival.

Volunteers are needed for three different days, including setup and take down from the event.

Everyone who helps will get free breakfast, lunch and a t-shirt. Organizers say they won’t turn any volunteers away because the more who are involved, the faster the work can be finished.

The full festival lasts all day Thursday, July 4, starting with the parade and ending with fireworks at 9:15 pm.

Here is a list of the times and amount of volunteers who are needed:

July 3: 8 am – 1 pm (20+ needed)
July 4: 9 – 11 am / 4 pm – end of night (10 needed)
July 5: 8 am – Noon (30 needed)
