29th Annual Fourth Of July Celebration

Posted: Updated:

Step back in time with the Wichita County Heritage Society this Fourth of July! It's time to

bring out your red, white, and blue as we honor America with our 29th Old-Fashioned

Fourth of July Celebration and "Most Patriotic" Parade on Thursday, July 4th, 2013!

The festivities begin with an open registration for the "Most Patriotic" Parade at 8:15 a.m. at

the Old Post Office Building, 801 8th Street (the corner of 8th and Ohio). Entry is FREE and

First and Second Place Ribbons will be awarded in each of four categories: Children 0-6,

Children 7-12, Antique Car, and Specialty.

The parade will begin 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 are invited to line up along the

parade route to cheer on their favorite entries and wave to local dignitaries, Lady Liberty,

and Uncle Sam!

After the parade, the Kell House will host an old-fashioned salute to America, complete with

the presentation of award winners. Children as Thespians will perform live music and patriotic

readings. Then let the games begin! A Cake Walk, Fishing Game, and Beanbag Toss are just

some of the fun to be had from 9:30 to Noon.

For more information on this FREE celebration, please contact the Kell House Museum at

723-2712.
