      Cemetery Theater is a 4th of July festivity unique to the city.

      â??So that's a great opportunity for us to invite people to Kirksville and the Division of Tourism is a great partner for a small destination like ours because we just have one fulltime employee and one part time employee. It's good to have back up of the Division of Tourism to help promote our town,â?? said Boughton.
