One major topic of conversation for the upcoming Muscatine City Council meeting will be the rescheduling of Fourth of July festivities. Due to Covid-19, the city made the decision to cancel the events normally planned for Independence day. The Greater Muscatine Chamber of Commerce has applied to move the festivities to September.
The application shows that Sunday, September 6th would be the date for fireworks but also says that this is subject to Covid-19 mandates. It would take place at Riverside Park from 7pm to 10pm. Social distancing can still occur as people can spread out to Pearl City Station.
Chamber member Jodi Hanson will appear on Moving Forward on KWPC AM860 with Amy K Thursday morning to give a little more insight into the proposition. So far, Public Works and Fire and Police Chiefs have signed off on it. We’ll have more information as the story updates.
