Monticello Cancels 4th of July Parade; Fireworks Still On

There will be no 4th of July parade in Monticello this year.

The Monticello community announced Tuesday that the annual 4th of July Parade is cancelled. However, they say even a pandemic cannot stop the celebration of our nation’s Independence Day and Monticello still intends to mark that day with a grand fireworks show.

Independence announced last month they were also cancelling their 4th of July celebration this year, with no Celebrate Indee festival or 4th of July Parade.

Dyersville and Earlville are expected to make decisions about their events soon.
