Freedom Poster Contest

The annual poster contest is an opportunity for Moorestown school kids aged 5 through 9 years to show what they think — and what they know — about our nation and its history. The poster contest theme is connected to the Parade theme each year. The prize is a certificate of recognition and a special place in the Parade!

Freedom Lecture Series

 

2015 Freedom Lecture Updates

A new installment in the Freedom Lecture series is currently in the planning stages, but is currently scheduled for June 6. Check back here for new information, or follow the Moorestown 4th of July Parade on Facebook.

 

The Moorestown Freedom Lecture Series installment on June 6th, 2013, featured a discussion of the Liberty Bell and Philadelphia’s Independence Hall, held at the Moorestown Library. Presenters Robert W. Sands, Jr., and Alexander B. Bartlett conducted extensive research for their book Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, from the Images of America series by Arcadia Publishing. Attendees were treated to new insights into our beloved regional landmarks.

The Moorestown Freedom Lecture Series is brought to you by the Moorestown 4th of July Parade Committee, which seeks to enhance the Parade experience through education and community outreach events.

The inaugural event in the Freedom Lecture Series explored Moorestown and Haddonfield in the colonial era, co-sponsored by the 4th of July Parade and the Historical Society of Moorestown.
