The City of Galva's annual Independence Day Celebration culminates in a spectacular fireworks display that draws nearly 10,000 visitors to the Galva Park District. Freedom Fest, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of Galva's Independence Day celebration provides the funding for this stirring show through fundraising activities performed throughout the year.
The Galva Car Show is held on the second Saturday of August each year.
Sponsored by the Galva Freedom Fest Comittee, this popular event provides an opportunity for local and regional car enthusiasts to display some of their most prized possessions to each other and the general public.
This gallery includes some pictures from the event. Enjoy!
TIP: if the slide show you want to view is not working correctly, reload the page and wait for the image of the rail road tracks to appear directly above the "search" bar.
