Independence Day Celebration


Saturday, July 3rd 2021

Clay County Courthouse Square

Thank you for supporting the Chamber of Commerce! Our goal is simple…to have FUN!  We encourage you to enter your child into competition with that spirit. You may print the entry form and drop it off at the Chamber office, 517 Court St. Or simply scroll to enter online. You may pay online or pay at the Chamber office or at the Chamber tent the day of the event.


Contest categories in boy and girl divisions are:

  • Baby Crawl

  • Walkers up to 24 months

  • Walkers 25 to 36 months


Contestants must check in at the Chamber tent to pick up their contestant number.  Contestants will be expected to cross the stage within a timely manor on their own.  You may strategically place an adult at each end of the stage to encourage your child, but the contestant is the only one allowed on the stage.  Also, you will not want to block the judge’s view. Judges will be watching for the following... stage presence, reaction to the crowd, and reaction from the crowd. 


Registration fee is $5.00 and the deadline is June 30th.  Registration is accepted after the deadline but is $8.00. 


Please understand that it will take time for the judge’s calculations to be verified and confirmed.  Announcement of winners will be shortly after the contest concludes with the presentation of awards and pictures taken for media release.
