The city of Excelsior had Fourth of July events lined up throughout the day.

Residents and visitors kicked things off right away in the morning with a 5K run and then a parade after that.

Thousands of people are out in the city to celebrate Independence Day, but business owners are enjoying the boost in sales.

All of the festivities ended in the evening with an air show at 8 p.m. and then a fireworks show at dusk.
