Kell House Kicked Off Its 28th Annual 4th of July Celebration

The 28th Annual Fourth of July Celebration at the Kell House and "Most Patriotic Parade" kicked off Monday.

The"Most Patriotic" Parade parade began at 9:00 a.m., winding its way from the Old Post Office along Ohio to 9th Street, and down to the Kell House Museum. Spectators were invited to line up along the parade route to cheer on their favorite entries and wave to local dignitaries, Lady Liberty, and Uncle Sam!

Wichita Falls resident Scott Campbell talked about the parade. "We didn't really know what to expect but we wanted to come out and see what it was and we were surprised to see this many people out enjoying the 4th of July everybody wearing red white and blue and enjoying themselves."

After the parade, the Kell House hosted an old-fashioned salute to America, complete with the presentation of award winners. Children as Thespians performed live music and patriotic readings. There was also a Cake Walk, Fishing Game, and Beanbag Toss. Texomans were also able to get a patriotic temporary tattoo, have their hair painted, enjoyed a hot dog and some ice cold lemonade.
