O'Fallon's Heritage and Freedom Fest offers more bang for your buck this Independence Day with three nights of family fun, from 5 to 10 p.m. Thursday, 5 to 11 p.m. Friday and noon to 10 p.m. Saturday (July 2 through 4) at the Ozzie Smith Sports Complex (900 TR Hughes Boulevard, O'Fallon; www.heritageandfreedomfest.com). Little patriots can romp in the Kids' Zone, which is packed with inflatables, craft areas, Hula-Hoops and giant checkerboards (with checkers), while the older crowd has access to the carnival rides and the midway games. There are also a ton of bands playing on two different theme nights: Country night (July 3) has Gloriana, Locash and the Well Hungarians, and Rock night (July 4) sees Smash Mouth, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Tonic and Superjam. And of course, there will be fireworks displays on Friday and Saturday. Admission is free, but you'll need money for concessions and to buy ride tickets.
Thu., July 2, 5-10 p.m.; Fri., July 3, 5-11 p.m.; Sat., July 4, 12-10 p.m., 2015
