Biggest Event in Melissa!
The City of Melissa and Melissa Area Chamber of Commerce partner together annually to bring this the biggest event to the Melissa community.  The Celebration of Freedom is held annually - typically the fourth Saturday in June (allows you to enjoy all the bigger events on the 4th of July!) and brings together the Melissa Community with fun for the whole family.  The event is held annually at Zadow Park, and offers an evening of FUN, FOOD, FELLOWSHIP, MUSIC and FIREWORKS!  

Some highlights of past events include:
  • KIDS ZONE children's play area made up of bounce houses of all kinds!
  • LIVE MUSIC presented by the City of Melissa! Acts such as Matt Nix Band, Malee Thomas Band, Texas Flood, and  Blue Moon Band!
