Where to Watch the 2020 Fourth of July Fireworks in the Cedar Valley
Can you believe that it is already the Fourth of July? We sure can’t! If you happen to be in the Cedar Valley of Iowa this weekend, we wanted to put together a little guide of the opportunities that communities are providing to celebrate the fourth. We do want to take a moment to thank all active and retired military personnel. It is by your commitment and sacrifice to this country that we are able to celebrate today.
Here are some of the locations with fireworks displays in the Cedar Valley. If you know of one that is not listed, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to have it added!
We do want to note that these locations do have guidelines about how to enjoy the events and respect other attendees. Some communities have designated areas or rules about where attendees can enjoy the show. Please research ahead of time.
