Sunday's 3rd annual Crestline Freedom Festival drew a strong crowd to The Hub downtown. The event featured a bounce house, a dunk tank with the police and fire chief taking turns in the wet seat, face painting, children’s games, a patriotic photoshoot, music, food trucks and more. There was a Patriotic Bike contest for children 12 and younger, and the Red, White & Bark dog contest followed. Fireworks began shortly after dark.
