While the Barons have a new home in Birmingham, the city of Hoover is still busy booking events at the Hoover Met.
The newest event is a Fourth of July fireworks show called "Freedom Fest." The event will also feature a car show, live music and games for kids.
Hoover says it has had success booking the Met since the Barons left. The city has spent $600,000 renovating the facility and has attracted luncheons, receptions and bridal shows. The SEC baseball tournament returns later this month as well.
