Residents and community leaders in Newton took pride in their country Saturday with their Celebrate America Festival.
The festival was a celebration to honor soldiers. Entertainment was provided and there was plenty of fun for kids with inflatables and scavenger hunts. While there were many residents at the festival there was also one Germany exchange student enjoying America's history and politics.
"Politics in Germany are very different and this event is very interesting especially with the reenactment crew."
Newton's next event similar to Saturday's is the Battle of Newton. That event will be October 18th and 19th at John Hutto Park in Newton.
