31st Annual Carolina Celebration of Liberty

The Carolina Celebration of Liberty is the longest running event of its kind in our state. It has been seen in person by well over 100,000 people and on television by untold thousands. From parades to indoor fireworks, the celebration is a flag waving patriotic extravaganza that recognizes and honors those who have fought to preserve our freedom as well as those who are presently serving.

The celebration was Governor Carroll Campbell’s official kick off for the welcome home week for Desert Storm. It has also been heralded and backed by Mayor Bob Coble for so many years. Special guests have included virtually every commanding general from Fort Jackson during these 31 years as well as officials from Shaw Air Force Base and our own state guard. Other special guests and supporters have included Congressman Floyd Spence, Congressman Joe Wilson, Governor Carroll Campbell, Governor Jim Hodges, Senator Strom Thurmond, Senator Tim Scott, Senator Lindsey Graham, Attorney General Alan Wilson and many other state and local elected officials.

Our veterans organizations are always very special guests and they are well represented by their commanders and other officers.

With the Sanctuary Choir and Orchestra from First Baptist, the 282nd Army Victory Band, and a cast of hundreds you will thrill at the sights and sounds of America as we celebrate our freedom, our founding, and our future!

Joe Pinner will once again be with us to celebrate his 31st anniversary as master of Ceremonies!
