July 4, 2017, All Day
Due to our continuing efforts to ensure that Jackson County Parks + Rec’s facilities and events remain some of the best and most affordable in the Country, and the number of other Fourth of July opportunities in the area, we are sorry to say that we will not be hosting our 4th of July event in 2017. We will be putting this event on hold while we focus our time and resources on our many other events, including this years’ 30th Annual Christmas in the Park Celebration. Below, please find a list of Independence Day Celebrations offered throughout the Metropolitan Area. Have a safe and fun Fourth of July!
July 4, 2017, 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM @ Missouri Town 1855
Celebrate Independence Day the “old fashioned way” when Jackson County Parks + Rec’s Missouri Town 1855 presents its Annual Independence Day Celebration.
More than 50 Missouri Town volunteers, attired in the period clothing of the 1850s, will celebrate our country’s founding and freedom. The Missouri Town Musicians and Dancers will perform throughout the day. Children will enjoy playing the games that were popular in the mid-19th century and have fun with crafts and activities of the era. Volunteers will prepare for the holiday with interpretive cooking and other authentic interpretations. Grab your quill pen and affix your signature to the Declaration of Independence. Everyone is invited to join in the ever-popular patriotic parade scheduled to take place around 12:30 pm.
