4th of July Festival - 2015

 

 

We invite you to celebrate Independence Day with us in Limestone. Almost 75 years ago, Limestone put together its first 4th of July parade and began a community-wide tradition of celebrating Independence Day. Local historians remember the first few parades as being mostly a horse show and marching band presentations. But as the years went by, various organizations got involved and participated in the parade. Today the parade still occurs on the 4th of July (starting at 2 PM) and runs down Main Street with nearly 100 entries. The parade has definitely evolved over the years and has since become a highly anticipated event, but it's no longer the one-and-only event ... and certainly not the finale for the Independence Day celebration.

After the parade, downtown Limestone comes alive as music fills the air at various locations - and food booths & a beer garden are available at one of the venues.  There's even activities such as arts & crafts, tug o war, kickball and more for the children to enjoy.  The 4th of July Festivities have many community members, alumni, family and friends looking forward to it throughout the year - and why not, when there's plenty of food, beverages, music and laughter available for young and old.

But wait, the festivites aren't over! The display of fireworks that light up the evening sky over downtown Limestone as Independence Day comes to a close is one well worth watching.

Events such as Golf Tournaments, Antique Farm Equipment Shows, Community-Wide Yard Sale, various activities geared for children (Pet Show, Teddy Bear Picnic, Scavenger Hunt, etc.) have all become staples that make up Limestone's week-long 4th of July celebration.

We sincerely look forward to sharing this year's 4th of July celebration with you. We're sure you'll enjoy every part of it, just as much as we do.

Happy Independence Day!
