Kissimmee celebrates Independence Day with new citizens

June 23, 2013 by  

The annual Independence Day Celebration and Naturalization Ceremony is returning to Kissimmee this year. This year is the 237th birthday of the United States of America.

Up to 100 new citizens will be sworn in at a ceremony, which will be attended by Mayor Jim Swan and other government officials. In addition, there will be plenty of musical entertainment, children’s activities, and a fireworks display in the evening. There will also be a beer garden and local vendors will be selling their wares.

Another celebration will be taking place in nearby Walt Disney World. Several areas of the amusement park will be holding special events throughout the day. Hollywood Studios will be holding a “Rockin’ 4th of July Celebration” that will feature music from Mulch, Sweat & Shears set to a fireworks display. The Magic Kingdom will have the Main Street Electrical Parade followed by Wishes Fireworks.

All in all, there will be plenty to do in the Kissimmee area on Independence Day. No doubt local print companies will be helping organizers to advertise throughout the area.
