The parade will go to Main Street, back through the ballpark parking lot, stop at the Veterans Memorial to say the Pledge of Allegiance, and end at the shelter house at the City Lake Park. Free hotdogs, snow cones and drinks will be provided for participants. Parents and friends are asked to bring treats to share.

The day’s celebration continues at the city swimming pool, where from 1-5 p.m., kids and adults swim for free. In the evening, the City Lake will be the place to be for the fireworks display beginning at dark. Parking is available at the ball diamonds.
