Residents from the city of Fruitland are hosting a free 4th of July celebration this Saturday — the only celebration taking place in Muscatine County and the surrounding area for 2020.
The event — which will include a parade and fireworks show — was made possible through a fundraiser organized by a few area citizens.
Organizers say there is no entry fee to participate in the parade.
Floats, golf carts, police cars, fire and rescue vehicles, hot rods, veterans, businesses and “much more” will be in the parade — with the exception of animals.
Parade lineup will begin 9 a.m. near Fruitland City Hall and the Fruitland Fire Department on Sand Run Road.
The parade will begin 10 a.m. at the fire station, where the route will run for 1.5 miles, ending at the fire station.
Candy will be thrown out to kids during the parade.
Fireworks will begin at dusk.
