Fourth of July
July 4th celebrations have been a tradition in Wellman for many years with people coming from near and far to experience Wellman’s parade, fireworks, and all day events.
The day starts off with a kiddies’ parade at 9:30 am on Main Street followed by the main parade at 10:00. Following the parade various events are held in the community including pie throwing contests and other family-fun events. The downtown Heritage museum is open for tours as well as historic buildings at the Heritage Park on 7th Avenue.
Celebration events move to the North Park after the parade to include all day bingo, all day ball tournaments for the youth ball teams, sand volleyball tournaments, basketball tournaments, prairie life projects for children, dunk-tank, children’s carnival games, live pony rides, and lots of good food to eat.
Prior to the fireworks bring your lawn chair to North Park and enjoy listening to music from local musicians. Just after dusk expect a fantastic fireworks display (with many thanks to the Wellman Volunteer Fire Department for providing the excellent fireworks show).
