Celebrating our star-spangled country shouldn’t be limited to just one evening which is why the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess is lighting up the night sky and letting the red, white and blue reign all week with their 8th Annual 4th of July Freedom Fest.
From concerts and fireworks to poolside parties and a vintage air show, the family-friendly resort is the place to be for the red, white and blue. Guests can enjoy a full-out firework show every night at 9 p.m., June 29 – July 4, plus even more patriotic fun during the evenings of July 2 – 4. Take a peek below at all the fun offerings — plus ways to save big on a stay!
Vintage Air Show
Salute America’s heroes with a Falcon Warbirds air show on July 4. Flying over the resort and piloted by retired veterans, 30 vintage military aircraft from WWII, Korea and Vietnam will take to the skies while grounded guests can wave mini flags and cheer on the planes. The show will be topped off with a military parachutist from the All Veterans Parachute Team that will land with American and military flags to boot.
Fairmont Freedom Fest Tribute Concerts & Fireworks
What’s a celebration without music and a show? The Princess Lagoon Lawn will host live music for its tribute concerts while fireworks will create a dazzling display in the night sky. The performances are complimentary for overnight guests and those dining in one of the resort’s four outlets.
Keep cool all week long at the resort’s many pools, including the newest and largest Sunset Beach, decked out with sand, cabanas, swimming mermaids and foam parties. The Sonoran Splash pool with its 200-foot waterslides will host games and music and at night enjoy the H2/Glow Party with fog, lasers and LED hula hoopers. Don’t miss the red, white and blue frozen drinks and watermelon eating contests.
