The Morgan Hill Freedom Fest events celebrating our Nation’s Independence Day culminate with the “Fireworks on the Green” show each 4th of July at the Outdoor Sports Center, with each year improving over the previous year’s extravaganza. The large launching field of the southern half of the venue means the Fire Marshal can allow a bigger and better fireworks show providing a spectacular display over Morgan Hill. Food, vendors and live music are also provided as people gather on the Nationally recognized and professionally groomed sports fields of Morgan Hill’s Outdoor Sports Center.
