Sumner 3rd and 4th of July Celebration
July 3, 2017 - July 4, 2017
The celebration is an annual event (we celebrated 125 years in 2015). The multi day celebration includes a parade on the morning of the 4th, 2 rodeos, volleyball tournament, toad and turtle race, kids activities, street dance, BBQ in the park, many other activities and of course, fireworks. The parade theme this year is “Nebraska – 150 Years of Change” and with approximately 100 parade entries, it is one of the biggest in the state! The population of the town swells to thousands during the celebration, drawing crowds from the surrounding communities and friends, family, alumni and cowboys from across the state and country. The Sumner Commercial Club plans the celebration with the help of donations and volunteers from the community.
