Hub City Days – July
Celebrating the Fourth of July in Mt. Pleasant has always been a family affair, and includes many days of exciting community events. Fourth of July activities include a parade down State Street, early bird breakfast at the park, food, games and entertainment at the park all day. Festivities at the end of the day include a rodeo and spectacular fireworks display.
Hub City Days also includes our Mountain Man Rendezvous with muzzle loader shoot-outs, exhibits, trading, displays, candy cannon explosions, tomahawk and knife throwing contests, frying pan tossing, dutch oven cook off, kids games, native American dancers, historical reenactments and more. Participants camp out in authentic teepees and wall tents during the three day event. Spectators are always welcome at these rendezvous.

Christmas Lighting – December
Early in December, amid carols, games and entertainment, Mt. Pleasant’s Main Street is magically transformed into a sea of sparkling white, as thousands of little white lights trim each building, creating an old-fashioned Christmas village.
