BOOM! Fourth of July celebration activities all set for Muscatine

Independence Day 2021 will be celebrated like never before across the United States. And while there won’t be a traditional parade due to road construction, Muscatine will still have a full day of events on Sunday, July 4 to mark the 245th birthday of our nation.

The Greater Muscatine Chamber of Commerce and Industry is again organizing the events, starting with a kids parade from Second and Pine streets to the Musser Library at 9 a.m.

Keep Muscatine Beautiful will then host the Almost Fireworks Fest on the Muscatine Riverfront from 3 to 8 p.m. that will include live bands, food trucks, a beverage tent and fun things for the kids to do.

At 8:05 p.m. at the AFF Stage, there will be a reading of the Declaration of Independence and honor guard. The Muscatine Symphony Orchestra will then perform starting at 8:10 p.m. at Pearl City Station.

And then the highlight of the night, as fireworks are launched over the Mississippi starting at 9:30 p.m.
