Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - On this holiday, people got to take a stroll back in time to learn about the history of Americas Independence. But with all the history came a lot of fun too.

The line was out the door this morning, filled with people ready to celebrate the holiday at Bonanzaville’s biggest celebrations ever.

Al Ohrt, Fargo: “Oh the parade fireworks.”

People came dressed in their patriotic attire, filled with red, white, and blue, and of course flags. People got to enjoy games, plenty of food, and train rides. Aside from all of the fun and history, what Fourth of July celebration would be complete without a parade?

Dustin Patch, Fargo: “It's just nice to have a day off and be out here. We’re looking forward to the parade and the gun exhibit.”

The holiday means a little something different to everyone.

Xavier Lommen, Fargo: “It’s my grandpa’s birthday.”

Ohrt: “I came from Canada originally, so I became a member or a citizen and the Fourth of July is an important day.”

But the common favorite…

Ohrt: “Parade, fireworks.”

The fireworks.

Ryan Patch, Fargo: “The exploding.”

One parent says learning what the holiday is all about is one of the most important parts.

Dustin Patch: “To know where they came from and where America started and our independence from England.”

And it seems his little patriot already has it figured out.

Ryan Patch: “It means celebrating the United States Of America and spending time with your family.”

A $12,000 fireworks show will start at 10. There will be plenty of parking in the Bonanzaville lot.
