31st Most Patriotic Parade

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 31st Old-Fashioned Fourth of July Celebration and "Most Patriotic" Parade on Saturday, July 4th, 2015!

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