The Kell House is getting ready to celebrate Independence Day in its own old-fashioned way! In order to share the fun this summer, the Museum is inviting non-profit organizations and local businesses to come and join in the festivities. Not only would we like to see you participate in this year’s parade, we are opening our celebration to you as well!

The festivities will be held Thursday, July 4th, with the carnival opening as soon as the parade arrives at the Kell House (at approximately 9:30 a.m.) and running until noon.

Each participating organization or business may sign up to organize and operate one game or entertainment booth. You bring the game/entertainment supplies, set up your booth, provide the game prizes, determine the number of tickets required to play, man the booth, and break down and clean up your area after the celebration is over. All organizations are expected to stay and operate their booth until noon. Tickets will be tallied at the end of the morning’s festivities, and your organization will receive 80% of the money you bring in.

If you are interested in participating, the Registration form is available on our Facebook page at, or you may contact the Kell House at (940) 723-2712 or to have a form sent to you. Sign up soon! Space is limited, and only one of each game or activity will be allowed!
