    Obviously you are a big Brad Paisly fan. I wanted to read more about other acts before his show. Too much descriptions about his performances whereas many fans complained that the crowd was not really enthusiastic about his show. In some other articles, they described each opening act. Also some said David Archuleta's patriotic medley was really touching, honoring what Stadium of Fire was all about, and he got standing ovation. You should be covering more broad perspectives instead of a fan boy's perspective.

    Rocked the crowd at the stadium of fire? Whoever said they were rock? If this concert rocked it would have been Tesla,Queensryche,Bon Jovi,Styx,Kansas,Dokken,Great White,or Sammy Hagar at the event.
    People dont know what rock is anymore. Katty Perry does not rock. Justin Beiber does not rock. U2 does not rock. Lady Gaga does not rock.
    Pop is not rock. Only rock can rock and be rock dude!

    Wasn't there a flyover by the squad from Hill Air Force Base? No mention of the men and women flying to freedom fighter jets?

    If the country would show half of the patriotism the rest of the year as it does on July 4th we would be a stronger country. I love everything that Utah does to celebrate the 4th of July. I wish I lived closer so that I could attend like I used to do.

    The "Stadium of Fire" --- always on a Saturday --- is one of the most patriotic events in the USA, and it features some of the best talent in the nation.

    I would hope that we celebrate our freedom more than once a year and that we find ways to bless others that were not given so much.

    Yeeesh. The seats were very expensive... Wish the nosebleed seats were more reasonable. Sigh.

    I think it is ok to show patriotism more than just one day a year.

    It allows people to go to multiple events.

    Glad the children (first two comments) can read the news and have no fear of retribution for their silly opinions. Geesh.

    Having lived out here for the past 15 years I'm very grateful for the those that put forth so much effort in the organization of the Freedom Festival. It's a grand event and one that has become a pretty regular tradition in our family. Living in Utah is great, being part of the 4th celebration in Provo is the best!

    Because of a university study that shows most parade watchers are of the Republican Party we will once again flock to the parade and recharge our conservative batteries! Come join us on Center Street at 5am!

    Thank you City of Provo and Freedom Festival organizers! We love it!

    What's with all these places celebrating the 4th of July on the 2nd of July this year??? It's unpatriotic.
