Nebraska's Fourth of July City celebrates holiday

It's a day full of excitement in Nebraska's Fourth of July City, from young to old, and ever some four-legged friends.

It's a small town party Seward has been throwing since 1868.

"When you go from 7 thousand to 40 thousand in a matter of 24 hours, that's a big city," Sandy Kahn said.

Kahn is from Lincoln. She said she's no stranger to the celebration.

"I come up every year, look at the crafts. There's all kinds of things that are going on," she said.

For instance the food most people only see a few times a year, from kettle corn, to roasted nuts, and the fresh-squeezed lemonade.

While many line up to eat, 9-year-old Kelly Hall said she's ready for the rides.

"I think I'm go on to go on a roller coaster," she said.

"I'm not, I don't like rides!" 8-year-old Josie Rodgers said.

Clearly not the case for Rodgers, but there's one thing they're both looking forward to, the fireworks.

"I saw a humongous one. You get to watch all that neat stuff, but I got burned by fire, it was not fun," Hall said.

The festivities will end with a fireworks show in Plum Creek Park at 10 p.m.
