Come celebrate the best July 4th in history with old-fashioned, patriotic family fun. Join in the fun as the martial band leads the citizens' procession as they march through the streets. Cheer and "huzzah" during a rousing patriotic reading of the Declaration of Independence and sign a giant reproduction of the document. Make your own tri-cornered hat to wear as you learn to drill with the Sturbridge Militia. Learn dances done by 19th-century Americans and play a game of "base ball." Watch music and other special performances on the Village Common. On Saturday, July 4th at 11:00 a.m. a naturalization ceremony takes place on the Village Common. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will present scores of candidates to the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts, and they will pledge their Oath of Allegiance to the United States for the very first time. Old Sturbridge Village Singers will perform patriotic songs during the ceremony.
