4th Fest 2015 ~ 4th of July Celebrations in Coralville (Schedule)

4th Fest 2015 ~ 4th of July Celebrations in Coralville (Schedule)

July 4th is always celebrated in style in Coralville and 4thFest and the is one of the largest events of the year attracting visitors from far and near. 4th Fest Coralville IA Most of the activities are free and take place at S.T. Morrison Park in Coralville. Popular events include the Carnival and free concerts. The highlight of course is the 4th of July Parade starting at 10.00am on July 4th and the Fireworks after dark.

The 4th of July Parade at 4thFest starts at the Geico – Macgregor’s Parking Lot on 22nd Ave, Coralville with the same route as every year The Firework Display is after dark at S.T. Morrison Park. Any of the streets around 5th St in Coralville will get you a good view for that.

This year there are some extra events lined up to celebrate 50 years of the Coralville Library. Those events will be at City Hall. Times are listed below in the schedule.

You might be wondering whether work going on at the 12th Ave / Holiday Rd intersection will impact 4th Fest at all. Living on the “wrong” side of 12th Ave, I was wondering that too and it seems the plan is to open 3 lanes of the mini roundabout by the end of this week. North of Holiday Rd will still be closed as they complete patching between Holiday Rd and Liberty Lane. Fingers crossed that works out.
