Superior to host two-day July 4th extravaganza

Rocket’s red glare will light up the sky Saturday night.

Superior – For some, the fourth of July is a day that’s marked by the United States of America declaring its independence from the King of England. Other people see it as a birthday celebration, marking the birth of a great nation.

There are those who see it as a reminder of the infallibility of government and the need for the people to watch over the doings of those who have been duly elected to watch over them. Of course, there are people who see it as a reminder of past transgressions of a young government, against the natives of the land or persons who were brought to the land against their will, or, if with will, while misled.

Some dwell on the bravery of the men who signed the declaration of independence, knowing that to do so was to potentially, and for some practically, sacrifice their honor, wealth, and lives for the greater good.

Whatever else the 4th of July means to you, chances are, when you think about it, you’ll find that it means a certain pride of association with the finer ideals, laws and people of this country and a desire to celebrate those attributes which are good.

This year, the Town of Superior is celebrating the joy of being American this 4th of July with a two day event. On July 4, from 1 p.m. – 7 p.m., there will be free swimming for all. Wait, there’s more! The main 4th of July celebration will take place on Saturday, July 5, from 1 p.m. – 8 p.m. at the Swimming Pool Park. There will be food, games, jumping castles, water slides, a cake/cupcake decorating contest, music and lots of fun! Bring your own table and/or chairs. For a grand finale, fireworks will light up the sky, starting at 9 p.m.

Come and spend time with your fellow Americans, and join in the celebration!
