Additional Information

Kell House Old Fashioned Fourth of July

Step back in time with the Wichita County Heritage Society this Fourth of July! It’s time to bring out your red, white, and blue as we honor America with our 28th Old-Fashioned Fourth of July Celebration and “Most Patriotic” Parade on Monday, July 4th, 2011!

The festivities begin with an open registration for the “Most Patriotic” Parade at 8:15 a.m. at the Old Post Office Building, 801 8th Street (the corner of 8th and Ohio). Prizes will be awarded in each of six categories: Children 0-5, Children 6-10, Children 11 & up, Pet, Antique Car, and Specialty. A grand prize Spirit Award will be presented to the most patriotic entry in the parade.

The parade will begin at 9:00 a.m., winding its way from the Old Post Office along Ohio to 9th Street, and down to the Kell House Museum. Spectators are invited to line up along the parade route to cheer on their favorite entries and wave to local dignitaries, Lady Liberty, and Uncle Sam!

After the parade, the Kell House will host an old-fashioned salute to America, complete with the presentation of award winners. Children as Thespians will perform live music and patriotic readings. Then let the games begin! A Cake Walk, Fishing Game, and Beanbag Toss are just some of the fun to be had from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Meet Uncle Sam and Lady Liberty. Get a patriotic temporary tattoo, have you hair painted, enjoy a hot dog and some ice cold lemonade, or simply share a few smiles with other members of our community.

This heartwarming family event is generously sponsored by Senator & Mrs. Craig Estes, Airgas, Berend Brothers, Burger King, Castaway Cove, McDonald’s, Quizno’s Classic Subs, Southwest Automotive, Storkland, Texoma Cycling Center, and Area United Supermarkets.
