Elba prepares for Let Freedom Ring Festival


ELBA, Ala. (WDHN) — Elba prepares to welcome Independence Day with its annual “Let Freedom Ring” event.

More than a thousand people from the Wiregrass and Northwest, Florida will make the pilgrimage to Elba. A red, white, and blue parade will take place in the downtown district at 6:30 p.m. There will be food vendors, live music, and a law enforcement dunking booth. Dunk a cop and raise money for area law enforcement and veteran services.

“It is based on an old fashion on July 4th. We will start with a parade at 6:30, fireworks at dark, and the ringing of the church
bells,” said Sandy Bynum, with the Elba Chamber of Commerce.

The Elba festivities are based around an Independence Day celebration from more than a century ago.
