The town of Harman spent the morning and afternoon marking its fourth annual Fourth of July celebration. The Harman Volunteer Fire Department worked alongside businesses and community organizations to host a day of family-friendly activities.
“We try to put a little something back into the community because the community supports us a good bit, and we like to give it back to the community. Everybody is having a great time,” said Harman Fire Chief Jerry Teter.
Residents participated in an antique car show, chicken burn, kid’s carnival, and parade. Fire department volunteers will set off fireworks later in the evening.
“It’s just a good atmosphere for people to get out and bring families together a little bit. People that you don’t see for years, they’ve been coming in. It’s great to see everybody," continued Teter.
This year’s Harman Fourth of July event featured a special groundbreaking ceremony. Delegate Bill Hartman, alongside residents, broke ground on a veteran’s memorial.
