The Wapello County Republican Party will be holding its 18th annual Declaration of Independence celebration Monday at the Sycamore Park shelter by The Beach Ottumwa.
The annual family event will feature music, children’s activities, hot dogs, and a reading of the Declaration of Independence, kicking off July 4 week.
Zach Nunn, the Republican candidate in Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District, will be the guest speaker.
The document will be read by 13 different people, reflecting the 13 colonies that proclaimed their independence from England.
The event will start at 6 p.m., and the program will begin at 6:30 with patriotic vocal music and a reading of the Declaration of Independence. Copies of the document also will be available.
A free-will offering will be accepted.
