Preparations are under way for the annual Phelps Independence Day Celebration that will be held from 3:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 4th, 2018. The festivities will kick off with a parade through downtown, led by the grand marshal. Following the parade, a town celebration will be held on the lakefront of North Twin Lake. Festivities will include live music, kids games and inflatables, a pie eating contest, food and drink, and more. The grand finale for the event will be the amazing fireworks lit off over North Twin Lake at dusk.
The Phelps Chamber of Commerce is currently seeking nominations for this year’s Parade Marshal.
