MISSOURI TOWN 1855 CELEBRATES OUR COUNTRY’S INDEPENDENCE

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

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 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.

“We invite you to experience this patriotic day 1850s-style,” said Director Michele Newman, “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.”

Missouri Town 1855 is located at 8010 East Park Road, Lee’s Summit, Missouri. For more information visit, www.makeyourdayhere.com/missouritown.
