American Village Independence Day Celebration

Posted: Updated:
MONTEVALLO, AL - Mother Nature provided a perfect backdrop for the crowds who picked American Village in Montevallo as their Independence Day destination.

The low humidity and sunny skies welcomed hundreds of locals who took a step back in time to late 18th Century as they arrived in the Shelby County history showcase.

Dozens packed the Colonial Chapel to hear an interpreter deliver Patrick Henry's 'give me liberty or give me death' speech.

At the encampment, children participated as young recruits in the Continental Army.

The American Village has constantly expanded its 4th of July festivities since it first opened 15 years ago.

The day's activities will culminate with a fireworks show following a patriotic ceremony at 8:00 p.m. Friday.

The American Village is located on Highway 119 in Montevallo.

Admission to the event is $5 for those ages 5 and up and is free for all military and veterans.
