Fourth of July: Independence Day & 5k Firecracker Run

Independence Day Activities Set for 2019!

What a great day we’ll have on Saturday, July 6th celebrating our country’s birthday!  Come out to have fun and support all of the events.  The Firecracker 5K Fun Run in the morning, old fashioned kids games, family hands-on fun activities under the pavilion, hot dogs and the fixings, pie-eating contest, paintings, and an old-time parade in the afternoon.  Then fireworks over Cockrell’s Creek (sponsored by Omega Protein) that evening!

On Sunday there will be a Patriotic Concert at Festival Halle – proceeds to benefit the Museum and the local food bank.
