Independence Day

Organized by the Greater Muscatine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GMCCI), our Independence Day celebration starts with a pancake breakfast put on by the Muscatine United Way and a fun-filled children's parade put on by Musser Public Library.

The ever-popular SoapBox Derby will again be rolling down Third Street. This event starts at 11:00 a.m.

The full feature parade starts at 5:00 p.m. and is followed by a free concert on the 
riverfront by the Muscatine Symphony Orchestra. The orchestra's concert is bolstered with one of the best fireworks displays in the region. You can watch the fireworks burst over the Mississippi River right on the riverfront by setting up a chair in Riverside Park.
