It was a festive day in Nappanee on Thursday as folks gathered for the city’s annual Fourth of July celebrations.
Festivities included golf tournaments to a youth triathlon and even a “Nappanee’s Got Talent” event.
Folks have been participating in the celebrations since early in the morning.
But the parade was definitely the most popular attraction.
It's really cool walking the streets and seeing all the little kids and all the people just really excited for the day and what it has to bring," said Nappanee resident Lindsay Yoder.
The celebrations continue tonight with fireworks at Stauffer Park. Those begin at 10 pm.
