What are you doing this Fourth of July?

We touch down in three towns with July Fourth festivities, from an anything-goes parade in Round Pond, Maine, to Fort Pierre, South Dakota, where recent floods are not stopping the annual fireworks, parade and rodeo and Seward, Alaska, where people come from across the world to participate in the Mount Marathon extreme footrace.

This segment aired on July 1, 2011.
