Star Spangled Spectacular, Storm Lake, Iowa

Let Freedom Ring! Independence Day is just around the corner. The count down to fireworks, family, and friends has begun! In just a few days, Storm Lake, Iowa will be full of pomp and circumstance. The festivities of the Star Spangled Spectacular have become traditions for many area families, including my own.

Our favorite events include the Kiddie Parade on the 3rd, the Big Parade on the 4th, Artist’s Alley in the park, music at Sunset Park’s band shell, and of course all the yummy food! There is definitely something for everyone. For a full schedule of events check out Storm Lake United’s website or the Star Spangled Spectacular Facebook page.

4th of July Shirts
Our finished shirts will have everyone seeing red, white, and blue!

To make the holiday extra special, a friend and I recently got together to make shirts for our kiddos to wear. (We made matching ones for ourselves just for fun as well.) They were easy to make, and the kids had fun creating them. The full directions can be found on the Cutesy Crafts blog. You can also check out photos from our crafting session here.

With shirts made and and a schedule of events handy, we are ready to have a spectacular time on the 4th!

  1. I love those shirts! Wish I had seen this post earlier so I had time to make one for Lily. Maybe next year… 🙂

    1. They are super cute! The girls had a lot of fun making them too. You can use the same concept for any occasion-so maybe a cupcake for a birthday or an flower for summer?
