Pending budget and staffing:
The Glorious 4th Celebration
July 4th, 10AM until 3PM
The birthday of the young nation inspired great celebration among early 19th-century Americans. They gathered to offer toasts to George Washington and other important figures of the day. And they held games or competitions, cannon firings, and picnics complete with Washington Cake .
On Saturday, Oakley Plantation at Audubon State Historic Site will celebrate the 4th of July in the exact same spirit. Visitors can take part in traditional toasts to George Washington and other famous American patriots, see a cannon fired, and take part in historic games and competitions.
