Local Communities Celebrating Fourth of July

Several local communities will be hosting Fourth of July celebrations this week.

The Dyersville Commercial Club will host their annual 3rd of July Celebration Wednesday night. Park Manager Ashley Cosselman says Dyersville’s event is definitely unique.

Monticello will hold their annual Fourth of July Parade starting at 11 am on Thursday. City Administrator Doug Herman says this year’s parade route has changed slightly due to street construction.

Earlville’s July 4th Celebration takes place Thursday too. Gerene Gibbs says they’ll kick off the day with their 5K Fun Run/Walk and Little Firecracker Dash, followed by afternoon activities on Main Street and the parade at 4 pm.

Independence’s 4th of July parade is Thursday at 9 am, Aurora’s 4th of July parade is Thursday at 1 pm and Colesburg will hold their parade Saturday at 2 pm.
