Holiday Celebrations - like only a small town can do them!

· St. Patty's Day: downtown shuts down and is flooded in green for a whole day - the parade is an excuse for thousands of people to party!
· Fourth of July: we call it a stay-at-home-celebration, and there's a party in Memorial Park as well as a nice fireworks display (may not actually be on the 4th)
