Community Fourth of July Events

La Barge Branch Library

Eleven years ago, I attended my first Independence Day Celebration in La Barge. It started with the Main Street Parade, followed by the Lil Buckaroo Rodeo, and finished with fireworks on Firecracker Hill. Since then, every Saturday before the Fourth of July, you can find me with the rest of La Barge at the celebration.

Not only are our Fourth of July events great for recognizing and celebrating our country, but they also allow us to come together as communities, spend time as families and make lasting memories.

Towns throughout Lincoln County put on parades, barbeques, rodeos and, of course, fireworks displays. Generous sponsors and volunteers work hard to ensure that communities have fun events for the whole family.

When you’re just spending some time with family and friends, be sure to check out the library to help you make new Independence Day traditions. We have a wide selection of cookbooks, including barbeque and summer favorites. If you’re looking for a new game, take home one of our outdoor games and activities books. Read a biography or history book about one of our nation’s founding fathers (my favorite is Hamilton by Ron Chernow). Or partake in one of my favorite traditions, rewatching the movie Independence Day.

Below is a list of town and community events. I hope you have a fun and safe Fourth of July.
