GREENSBORO, N.C. (WGHP) — One of downtown Greensboro’s largest events is back.

The Fun Fourth Festival returned this year after being canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic.

The festival has live entertainment across three stages, and the Freedom Fest Laser Show will start at 9:30 p.m. on Saturday in the parking lot at the corner of Market and Davie streets.

Hundreds of people in red, white and blue crowded Elm Street to celebrate the Fourth of July and enjoy the weather.

The festival also featured Disney princesses, a mechanical bull and games.
