Old-Fashioned Fourth of July and Most Patriotic Parade

July 4 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm


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 35th Annual Old-Fashioned Fourth of July Celebration and “Most Patriotic” Parade on Thursday, July 4th, 2019!

The festivities begin with an open registration for the “Most Patriotic” Parade at 8:15 a.m. at the corner of 9th 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., following 9th Street from Ohio up the hill to Bluff Street, ending at 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, the Pledge of Allegiance, and more. Then let the games begin! A cake walk, face painting, and yard games are just some of the fun to be had from 9:30 to Noon.
