Surely the dates of June 26 2015 -June 27 2015 are wrong.The first Sunday in July is the 5th and the weekend before is the 3rd and 4th. Would this not be the correct weekend?

I am so glad that this year it is actually on the 3rd and 4th. of july .we are from out of town and we have to make lodging plans early.I hope this date is correct.

Sue Taylor, 5/9/2015

Who would have thought the celebration for July 4, would be a week earlier. Nobody is off work. This year we even booked cabins for July 3, and 4 so we wouldn't 'miss anything. Doesn't make sense to me!!!!! Ridiculous
