As a veterans nonprofit organization Cal-Diego PVA always takes part in the veterans day parade, but the organization wanted a bigger presence on the day. That’s when the Freedom Festival came about. A celebration at the end of the parade route with a car show on the pier in front of the USS Midway.
Probably the most important part of the 2011 celebration was the theme of hot rods. This allowed me to experiment with some color that was a little different than the usual Red White and Blue. When working for so long with a veterans and american theme Red White and Blue can become a little overwhelming. It was nice ti mix it up a little.
