Missouri Town 1855 Celebrates July 4th

July 3, 2014

Celebrate Independence Day the “old fashioned way” when Jackson County Parks + Rec’s Missouri Town 1855 presents its annual Independence Day Celebration, Friday, July 4, 9:00 am – 4:30 pm.

More than 50 Missouri Town staff and volunteers, attired in period-appropriate clothing of the 1850s, will celebrate our country’s founding and freedom. The Missouri Town Musicians and Dancers 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.
A special recitation of the Declaration of Independence will serve as a poignant reminder of the importance of the day.
Everyone is invited to join the entire staff and volunteers in the ever-popular patriotic parade.

A visit to Missouri Town 1855 on July 4th is a special opportunity to experience the life of our ancestors whose hard work and patriotism paved the way for us to enjoy this special national holiday today.
