Fourth of July in Campbellsville

People in Campbellsville are very proud of their Fourth of July celebration tradition. They take pride in having the biggest parade in the State of Kentucky for this most important American holiday. Therefore there was a lot of sadness in this town when all festivities were cancelled last year due to COVID. One could almost feel a cloud of depression settling in on the city and hanging around low in the atmosphere because the rhythm of life here suffered a tragic disruption.

This year Fourth of July has made a comeback in Campbellsville. The day started early before 7am with the launching of the hot-air balloons in the upper Miller park. After a free breakfast at Campbellsville Christian Church, people started strolling downtown to get ready for the parade. After the conclusion of the parade there was a lull in the afternoon until everyone gathered again for the fireworks at 10pm.

About David and Lam

A smitten couple and loving parents in our early 40s. We have lived in 3 different countries together. We dream of living in a fourth country together after our children grow up. We love long walks in the woods, climbing mountains, boating, traveling, reading, and being together. Both David and Lam are old souls who love quietness and meaningful conversations in which we ponder the truth and mysteries of life as well as discuss philosophical and ethical matters. We especially like to enjoy the small pleasures of daily life.
