Hermann Missouri is proud to be a home to many Fourth of July activities. The men and women of the Armed Services are honored during these processions around Hermann and everyone, including locals, visitors and even veterans, are welcome to join in the festivities and celebrate our great nation during this time of remembering our Independence.
Many of the businesses sponsor events throughout the day and most are anxious to meet and greet you in their stores throughout Hermann. In the spirit of commerce and fun, you’ll find many local businesses offering special deals or featuring new and exciting products during the Fourth of July.
One of the great things about the Fourth of July in Hermann is the annual parade through the streets. Many of the local Hermann businesses come together to build or create a float or entry that will get the attention of all the people on the streets. Hermann usually has several dozen entries and it’s a good time to get the kids out on the sidewalks to watch the floats and vehicles pass by since there is usually an abnormal amount of candy and goodies that fly through the air.
