Boone County — The Boone County Fourth of July Committee has been busy planning this year’s activities, and it recently announced this year’s celebration theme: “Stars and Stripes Forever.”

These festivities have become a tradition for Boone County residents, their families and friends, said Andrew Wood, the committee chairman. Boone County is the only county in the state that holds a week-long celebration for the Fourth of July.

“The excitement and energy around these events draw thousands of visitors from around Indiana and beyond,” Wood said. “Our festival is one of the finest observances in the state.”

The committee is asking for financial support from the community to maintain this holiday tradition.
