East Texans will be coming together to show their patriotism this Saturday in downtown Kilgore!

July is the most patriotic month thanks to the celebration of the independence of the United States of America, Kilgore Main Street will be continuing the patriotism with a gigantic 'Patriotic Street Party' on Saturday, July 21st!

You can show off your patriotism in any way - a special hat, t-shirt, uniform, flip flops - dress any way you want to show your patriotism, even displaying it on your vehicle! As with any festival there will be a parade. However, this will not be your ordinary parade, it will be a kids bike parade! Kids will be decorating their bikes to win prizes from judges before the parade begins at 11a at North St. and N. Kilgore St.

Where there's a festival there's a food contest! The Patriotic Street Party is hosting the American Food Contest where East Texans can win prizes with their homemade pies, salsa, cakes, pickles, cookies and jelly and jams! If you have a family recipe that could win, you've gotta sign up to enter that dish!
