From brass bands to brats to bubble gum blowing, the Chippewa Valley Museum offered lots of patriotic at their 17th Annual Independence Day Celebration on July 4. The all-day celebration combined traditional activities with fresh family fun, including: music by the Eau Claire Municipal Band, cake walks, carnival games, patriotic speeches, an honor guard, and a civil war encampment, plus food and drinks.
