There may be a stretch of North 28th Street that’s closed from Catlin to Hill Avenue after last week’s flooding.
But the 15th annual Citizens Fourth of July Celebration parade is still on next week.
“There should be no more changes barring another natural disaster,” said Superior Traffic Sgt. Mark McGillis.
Dave Stannard, co-chairman of the organizing committee said he met with city staff and the parade is still a go for North 28th Street.
“We’re up to about 100 entries with new acts this year,” Stannard said.
Those acts will line up along Catlin Avenue near Superior High School before heading west at 11 a.m. on North 28th Street then south on Hammond Avenue to Superior Middle School.
The Downtown farmers’ market will be open as usual at 11 a.m. on the 4th in the north parking lot of the Superior Public Library. The market will be open during and after the parade.
Sue Ann Dumke, market manager said the vendors are looking forward to a day of festivities with an entry in the parade and booths open at the market.
“We will have a horse drawn carriage with farm families handing out treats,” she said.
Following the parade, the Superior Singers provide a patriotic performance at 1 p.m. Heritage Park. Then, head downtown for cars, music — and new this year — activities at Center City Park.
Free Fallin’ is performing a tribute to Tom Petty from 2 to 6 p.m. on the corner of North 12th Street west of Tower Avenue during the car show.
Following the car show, it’s time to head to the fairgrounds for a performance by the Bugs at 7 p.m.
Stannard said he expects the performance to bring the festivities to the grand finale of the city’s Independence Day celebration — the annual fireworks show at the Bong Memorial Airport at dusk.
