The “oohs” and “ahhs” of a twilight fireworks display is the centerpiece of many Fourth of July celebrations. But celebrating Independence Day in Johnson County isn’t restricted to pyrotechnics.

Revelers can cheer and catch candy as decorated parades march, learn about history during a recreation of a Civil War camp or honor the community’s heroes during a worship service.

With activities starting soon, the Daily Journal has a rundown of what not to miss during the next two weekends. Unless noted, all activities and events are free to attend. For more events, see Page C6.
