A stirring remembrance ceremony brings residents and families from out of town to Stuhr Museum. The ceremony honored the sacrifices of the military but the day also brought an exciting afternoon.
The heat certainly isn't keeping people away from enjoying all the fun today this event is one of Stuhr museums biggest events of the year its takes place in Stuhr's 1890s railroad town.
The event kicked off with a parade down the railroad towns front street, patriotic live music and of course plenty of games for families to enjoy throughout the evening"
For the past fifteen years, Sthur Museum has brought the community an exciting, heart-racing, Independence Day.
Its less about fireworks and more about community all together kind of doing everything they can to celebrate the day
"its 1892 this year in Railroad town and so we're promoting things as if its 1892," said Kay Cyinova, Director of Historical Interpretation.
More than one hundred years, the celebration is still a big deal but in a different way.
"The 4th of July is the best time to come out because then they've got a parade and the kids can be in the parade and they carry flags," said Janel Zubrode.
"I like coming out because there's so many different games and it's fun to come out and play with all the green you," said Abigail Cady.
For some kids the highlight is the fireworks.
But then the old fashion American event reminds others of the past, what's become the present and what will be the future.
"I like the history behind th4th of July the events and the fight against tyranny that our founding fathers went through and the history that followed after the 4th of July to the founding of our nation," said Adam Condon.
