4th of July Freedom Fest at The Princess

July 3, 2015 - July 5, 2015

The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess is unfurling its 5th annual “4th of July Freedom Fest,” a two-day event with vintage air shows, concerts, fireworks, all-American fare, military tributes and poolside fun, with vacation packages benefitting military families, July 3-5, 2015.

Fireworks-3

Saluting Heroes & Vintage Air Shows
Saluting America’s heroes, the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess will host a one-of-a-kind vintage air show July 3 & 4, where a dozen military aircraft that flew in World War II, Korea and in Vietnam will fly over the resort, flown by retired veterans. (Photos and the history of each plane will be on display in the resort’s main lobby.) Both air shows will conclude with a military parachutist from the All Veterans Parachute Team soaring through the skies and landing with an American flag. Miniature flags will be provided to guests on the ground to cheer on the crews. Over at Trailblazers Kids Club, veterans will meet with kid campers.

Fairmont ‘Freedom Fest’ Tribute Concerts & Fireworks
Revelers can dance and celebrate with live music under the stars on the Princess Lagoon Lawn, July 3 & 4. The Freedom Fest tribute concerts, with a patriotic introduction and fireworks intermission, are complimentary for overnight guests or those dining in La Hacienda, Bourbon Steak, Toro Latin Restaurant & Rum Bar or Ironwood American Kitchen.
