4th of July Event & Fireworks
If you are interested in having a vendor booth at the fair grounds for the 4th of July celebration (on July 3rd) there is still time! There is no charge but you need to call the city office at 795-4433 to discuss where to set up, etc. So far Tropical Sno will be there and the Lions Club with hamburgers, hot dogs, ice cream, drinks and root beer floats. The event starts around 7:00 pm
For those who want to get a jump on the celebrating you can start shooting off fireworks beginning June 27th and go thru July 5th. However, hours are only 8:00am until 10:00pm with the hours extended to midnight on July 4th.
Oswego, the Labette County seat, is located at the intersection of Highways 59/160, on a bluff overlooking the Neosho River Valley. Oswego was fortunate that a group of pioneer ladies had a vision, and purchased acreage along the bluff that is now Historical Riverside Park, our hidden gem. Over 80 acres of beautifully landscaped park includes a large public swimming pool, playground equipment, shelter houses, 10,000 s.f. community center, tennis courts, basketball court, RV park, ball fields, and home of the Labette County Fairgrounds. It is the perfect location for family reunions, weddings, company events and picnics, and other organized events.
