For the first year in the 38-year Campbellsville Fourth of July Celebration history, we’ve been rained out!
The parade will be moved to July 13th at 10:00 AM. Staging is the same and the AutoSmart Float Contest will continue as planned. Fireworks and hot air balloons will be in Miller Park the evening of Friday the 12th. Food booths and vendors will be set up, so come eat with us! Thank you for your support, and we’re sorry. Even though you’re not celebrating with us today, you can still celebrate being an American at home, and we’d love to know how you did it! Create memories and share them with us!
- The signing of the Declaration of Independence. With this single move, America as we know it was born. We set the precedent for freedom, equality for all, and independent strength.
- Landing on the moon. We took the lead in science, technology and exploration by being the first country on the moon.
- Cornwallis surrendered to Washington, thereby ending the Revolutionary War. In that instant, the then greatest power in the world surrendered to our wish to be free.
- The end of WWII. We not only won the war, but we brought peace to much of the globe.
- Ben Franklin’s experiments with electricity. Where would we be without the invaluable tools Franklin provided us? Again, we led the way in growth, technology and science.
- Wright Brother’s Flight. We were the first in the air and the first to free humans from the confine of the ground and the sea.
- Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. While our country may have been in a sad state of affairs at the time, King’s speech is known world-wide and it, in and of itself, sparked an intellectual revolution.
- Ratification of the Constitution. By signing this document, our founding fathers ensure that the freedoms enjoyed by early Americans would continue to be enjoyed forever.
America. With those 7 letters, concepts like freedom, acceptance, equality and growth are conveyed. Far beyond what America has to offer, though, are the foundations America was built upon. Consider the attributes our founding fathers held dear: bravery, unity, success, inclusion, confidence, strength and so much more. When looking back through history, it’s easy to see that American values crop up over and over again not only at home, all over the world. With that knowledge, it’s our honor to be able to announce the 2013 Campbellsville Fourth of July Celebration theme: America’s Moments in History.
