It's going to be a beautiful weekend to celebrate Independence Day in Grinnell! With a lot of visitors in town for Fourth of July Celebrations plus the Grinnell-Newburg All Class Reunion, we are still in need of volunteers to help us make our celebration run smoothly. Would you consider helping us with the downtown block party tomorrow night? Events like this don't happen without the support of many volunteers. You may sign up online (enter your email quick and it will show you all of the shifts).
Downtown Block Party

Enjoy an evening in downtown Grinnell with your friends and neighbors at Friday Fest, a downtown block party with live music from Mojo Machine, Nick Wallace and Grinnell's very-own Whiplash, a beverage garden, and kid activities. This year's celebration is in conjunction with the Grinnell-Newburg All-Class Reunion, so get ready for a big bash!
Monday, July 4 - 5:00 PM
Route: The parade will follow a modified route to avoid the street construction taking place on Broad St. near the Mayflower Community. Please help us spread the word! The parade will begin on the south end of East Street near Grinnell Middle School. It will go north on East St.; turn west on Hamilton Ave.; turn north onto Main St. and drive toward downtown; turn east onto 4th Ave.; turn north onto Broad St.; turn east onto 10th Ave. at Grinnell College; and then turn south onto Penrose St. where the parade ends at Ahrens Park.
