The largest free festival in Michigan is back and bigger than ever at Freedom Hill Amphitheater in Sterling Heights. This year’s Stars & Stripes festivities will include headlining performances by musical acts like Hoobastank, Buckcherry, Scott Weiland & the Wildabouts, P.O.D., Sebastian Bach, and Warrant. Aside from music, there will be a carnival midway, a craft beer village, fireworks, a petting zoo, camel rides, pig races, a banana derby, and a white tiger discovery exhibit. The event runs from Thursday through Sunday and it’s free and open to the public. Thursday is family day and all carnival rides will be half off.
