THE RUTLAND WAY
75 YEARS AND COUNTING
75 Years ago, this town of ours had it’s first 4th of July parade, the grand finale of 4 days of fun!
Since 1948 our town, the parade and the crowds have grown, but the small town feel of coming together to celebrate our independence has remained.
Across the country Americans celebrate the 4th of July in many different ways. If you ask 10 people “What makes the way Rutland celebrates so special?”, you will get 10 different answers. This year we want to shine a light on our small town pride, from the fireworks to the back yard barbecues Rutland is where you want to be. This July we are going to show everyone how we celebrate Independence Day the Rutland Way!
Happy 4th of July Rutland!
