America’s Small Town Fourth of July Celebration
2111 Karol Kay Blvd., Seward, NE 68434
Seward gets loud each summer when “America’s Small Town Fourth of July City” launches its Independence Day celebration with a celebratory bang. The community’s first observance of the holiday was in 1868. Since that first community picnic and anvil firing, the celebration has exploded into a three-day, rain-or-shine spectacular of dozens of events.
The fun includes volkswalks, an official flag raising, patriotic speakers, the popular food alley and many vendors. Art exhibits, a carnival, a pet parade, a pancake breakfast, a hot dog feed, a bubble gum chewing contest, a car show, and a military vehicle show at the Nebraska National Guard Museum round out this event. Bring a chair and blanket to Plum Creek Park for the giant fireworks display.
