Celebrate our nation’s birthday the old-fashioned way!  Come to Columbia State Historic Park on the 4th of July and participate in the many activities the 49ers enjoyed way back when, including a glorious parade up Main Street at noon.  Folks in Columbia began the 4th of July parade tradition in 1852.  After the parade, listen to the Great Mother Lode Brass & Reed Band concert, dance in the street, and try your skill at the many contests popular in the early days of Columbia.  The kids will enjoy trying to climb the greased pole, and participating in the bucket brigade and the cake walk.  Other contests for kids of all ages include nail pounding, watermelon and pie eating, egg relay race and egg toss, and a five-way tug-of-war.

The parade and concert are free, and entering the contests only costs a buck.  A pulled pork barbecue will be served at 4 pm. Barbecue tickets are $10 for adults and $6 for children under 10. Come early for the best parking and bring lawn chairs.  The festivities will begin with a ceremonial flag raising and black powder musket salute at 11 am.
