The Hurdland 4 July celebration is the oldest annual Independence Day celebration in northeast Missouri, and one of the oldest in the state as a whole. The first was held in 1873. The two-day festival features live music, games and contests, talent shows, and a large fireworks display. Hurdland is also a great place to work and establish a business.
