Food, arts and crafts, toys and more are all expected to be on display during Freedom Fiesta on Saturday, June 30 in downtown Seguin. Vendors can still get signed up for the event by calling KWED/Seguin Daily News at 830-379-2234. 
(Seguin) -- Seguin Radio KWED is looking for a few good vendors for its annual Fourth of July celebration. Both profit and non-profit vendors are encouraged to lock down their spot at this year's Freedom Fiesta scheduled for Saturday, June 30 in downtown Seguin.
Darren Dunn, KWED and Seguin Daily News general manager says there's plenty of room for folks who want show off their products and services.

"There's plenty of opportunity for you to connect to all of the people that would be coming to Freedom Fiesta this year. Vendors can get a booth, get set-up. You can sell all of your goods and services right there in Central Park to all of those people who want to be a part of Freedom Fiesta this year. Don't forget we are expecting a big homecoming crowd with all the folks coming in for Freedom Fiesta this year so make sure you get yourself a booth. Be one of our vendors at Freedom Fiesta this year," said Dunn.

Dunn says there's also some limited spots available for those looking to cook things up at this year's celebration.

"Non-profit groups still have an opportunity to get themselves a food booth. Now, space is very limited for these folks but if you have an idea, something you want to cook up, something you want to serve during Freedom Fiesta and you are a non-profit organization, there's still time for you to get signed-up for that. So we want to hear from those people as well. If you have a food item you want to sell, give us a call. We will see if we can get you included as one of our food vendors for Freedom Fiesta as well," said Dunn.

There's also opportunities for those groups wishing to connect with local families at this year's Freedom Fiesta. On-air personality Linda Duncan says she's currently on the hunt for groups wishing to host a game booth.

"We have spots available for non-profit game booth vendors. We are so excited to have some of our regulars back again this year but we do have some spots open and we really want to invite those non-profits to come out who are looking to make just a little bit of extra money this summer for their organization and they can do any type of game that they would like to do and maybe if they have information about their organization that they want to share -- even if maybe they are doing a raffle -- if they want to do a raffle along with their game -- we will have an opportunity that night to give away those items as well," said Duncan.

Duncan says when it comes to hosting a game booth, the ideas are limitless and make for a fun night.

"Game booths -- anywhere from like lollipops that have a little dot underneath them, we have some bean bag tosses, basketball hoop shoots -- any kind of game that you can come up with. Any type of kiddie type carnival games, that's what we are looking for," said Duncan.

More importantly, Duncan says the opportunity is free to any non-profit wishing to recruit members or promote their group.

"Potential groups would be anything from maybe you have a softball club, baseball club, you play year round basketball or maybe you play football, we'd love to have you down and raise a little bit of extra funds for some of your equipment or maybe your travel expenses or maybe you are a church youth group, maybe you are involved in some kind of organization that helps other organizations in town and you want to make a little bit of extra money or you feel like you want to give towards Freedom Fiesta and just help with the camaraderie of us all being together, being a homecoming down at Freedom Fiesta so we want to have things for youth to do as well. So if you feel, 'hey, I want to do that, our group can do that' just give us a call and we'll get you a spot," said Duncan.

Vendor booths are $100 for profit and $75 for non-profit. Non-profit food vendors are $50 plus a $25 permit fee to the city of Seguin.

This year's Freedom Fiesta is scheduled from 6 p.m. to midnight in Central Park. This year's theme is "Homecoming" and will feature live music from the Bittersweet Band, an all inclusive SHS alumni reunion band.

Events officially kick off with the annual Kiddie Parade hosted by the Guadalupe County Republican Women at 6:30 p.m.

Those wishing to secure their vendor spot at this year's KWED Freedom Fiesta are asked to stop by the radio station located at 609 E. Court Street or call 830-379-2234.
