Independence Day the Small-Town Way

Question: What is "America's Small-Town 4th of July City?"

Answer: Seward, Nebraska. For 140 years this city, west of Lincoln, has hosted an old-fashioned family celebration. Most of the leadership for this event is provided by high-school youth. And upwards of 40,000 people are expected to attend this year!

If you're one of those lucky 40,000, here are a few events you can expect: anvil firing, a carnival, parachutists, pet parade, apple-pie eating contest, band concerts, baseball games and a Wild West shootout. There are dozens more things going on, in addition to the fireworks, of course.

If you're nowhere near Seward, there are still ways to enjoy a small-town 4th, even if you live in, say, Manhattan:

1) decorate a bike

2) drink lemonade

3) wear red, white and blue

4) light dime-store sparklers

5) wish everyone you see a Happy Independence Day

As for us, we'll start with #5:  have a Fantastic Fourth!
