Knox County residents celebrated Independence Day in Knox City and Munday.
Celebrations started on Saturday July 3rd, with the Knox City Fire Department hosting celebrations at Greyhound Stadium in Knox City. Cool weather and cloudy skies did not dampen spirits or attendance.
The 380 Highway Band performed throughout the day.
Children enjoyed the bounce house and inflatable slide in the play area, and food vendors offered burgers, hot dogs, snow cones, barbeque and other foods. Jessy Horton from Abilene offered a menu featuring frog legs and gator. The chili dogs at the Greyhound Concession Stand were a popular choice.
Pastor Curtis Schrader for the Methodist churches in Knox City and Benjamin dressed in patriotic colors.
