The United States celebrates Independence Day today, the middle of a three-day weekend that - for many - continues with a day off from work on Monday. Kingman events include the Fourth of July Festival at the Mohave County Fairgrounds, featuring Little Miss and Little Mister contests for those 5 and younger, bingo, games, food, 8 ball pool tournament and a talent contest. The event is sponsored by Kingman Regional Medical Center and Uptown Drug. The day culminates with a 9 p.m. fireworks show sponsored by the city of Kingman. A listing of other activities can be found on Page 2A of today's Miner.
