Seward's Fourth of July Celebration

Named "America's Fourth of July City: Small Town USA" by Congress in 1973, the town of 6,000 provides more than 100 activities, events and exhibits at its celebration, drawing 40,000 visitors throughout the day. Many events are free, making the day very family-friendly. Held every year since 1868, the celebration is organized by volunteer high school students.

Originally submitted by: Doug Bereuter, Representative (1st District).
