A full day of patriotism awaits at the "I Love America" Independence Day events at Bakersfield College.

The Liberty Festival -- including everything from bicycle decorating, patriotic hat and cute baby contests to apple pie eating -- takes place from 2 to 7 p.m. July 4 Entry to that part of the day is free.

Then the Freedom Celebration kicks off at 7:30 p.m. That includes patriotic music, a singing flag, skydivers and aerial fireworks. Tickets for the show range from $5 to $12 in advance, and $7 to $12 at the gate.

The co-producers of the event, Rick and Debbie Moore, talked about it Wednesday on "First Look with Scott Cox."

Debbie Moore said if you don't come inside, you won't get to see all the events of the night performance.

She encouraged Bakersfield to come out and show the world "how America celebrates her birthday."

Simulcast host Scott Cox said: "I hope that this thing is just swamped with people."
