Belmond celebrates holidays in style from the Fourth of July to Christmas. On July 4, the city has one of the largest ground fireworks displays in the state, along with a parade and other festivities.
On the day after Thanksgiving, there is a lighted parade to launch the Christmas season and open Belmond’s very own Santa House on Main Street.
The third weekend of August, the community celebrates its annual Prairie Homestead Antique Power and Country Craft show at the Jenison-Meacham Memorial Art Center and Farmstead. The Dog Days Triathlon is held the same weekend.
