Returning after a two-year hiatus, the Estero Historical Society announces its traditional Independence Day celebration beginning at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, July 2, in which there will be a reading of the Declaration of Independence. Local historian Jacob Winge will be in attendance dressed in authentic 18th-century period costume and the Estero Fire Rescue team will be there to raise the flag. Following the ceremony, watermelon will be served picnic-style for all attendees to enjoy. What a great way for parents and youth to kick off their Independence Day holiday weekend, remembering the importance of what this day in American history represents.
This celebration will be held on the grounds of the Estero Historical Society museum, located at 9285 Corkscrew Palms Blvd. in Estero Park, and the entire community is invited to attend.
