The 138th Independence Day Parade - "America's Super Heroes" begins at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, July 4th. This celebration began in 1879 and remains the oldest, continuous west of the Mississippi River.
Be sure to spend the day on the square with family and friends!
The earliest celebrations were composed largely of local families traveling by foot, horseback, and wagons to a large grove just north of town to enjoy the day with friends and neighbors. People would gather together early to clear the underbrush, preparing and smoothing the grounds for lemonade, soda pop, popcorn, crackerjacks, and candy stands. Wood was also cut and hauled to a huge pit where beef, pork, and chicken were roasted for the celebration.
Although many years have passed, family, friends, and neighbors still travel to Marshfield to enjoy this Independence Day celebration, eat a corn dog or a sandwich from one of the many food vendors, and have an ice cold lemonade or soda pop similar to those early celebrations.
