Lebanon is the county seat of Boone County, Indiana and is small-town charm at it's finest. Whether it’s waving at neighbors as you walk the sidewalks and paths or celebrating any of the many of the city’s quality-of-life building events, Lebanon just feels like home.
They’re scenes taken directly from the pages of Americana.
Floats lovingly decorated with all manner of red, white, and blue, accented by shiny silver streamers. A high school marching band providing a spirited soundtrack. Kids’ bikes decked out in patriotic colors for the Pedal Parade. American flags everywhere you look.
If residents of Lebanon, Indiana, were to rank their favorite community event, it’s likely the city’s Fourth of July celebration would be at the top. All ages have the opportunity to get involved—and they do, whether it’s scooping cold treats in the Tri Kappa ice cream social, gathering a team for silly games in Almost Anything Goes, playing in the Community Band concert, or simply lining the streets to cheer on the Independence Day procession.
Community pride runs high in Lebanon, the Boone County seat, where residents enjoy a significant quality of life.
