    Some Des Moines-area Fourth of July events canceled

    Tags: iowa floods



    Threats of rain have led to the cancellation of some Fourth of July events, including:

    • The West Des Moines fireworks show at Raccoon River Park, originally scheduled for tonight, has been postponed until next Friday, July 9, at dusk.
    • All Waukee Fourth of July activities, including the parade and fireworks, have been rescheduled for Monday. The parade will start at 2 p.m, followed by inflatables in Centennial Park, the band Standing Hampton and fireworks.
    • Windsor Heights has canceled activities scheduled for Colby Park following the parade. The prayer service at 1 p.m. and parade at 3 p.m. will go on as scheduled today. City officials say they will work to reschedule the other events for later this year.
    • Jordan Creek Town Center in West Des Moines has canceled its dueling pianos concert and fireworks show planned for tonight. Organizers said Live at the Creek will be rescheduled for later this summer.
    • The City of Grinnell’s parade and fireworks have been postponed until Monday at 5 p.m. and 9:45 p.m., respectively.
    • The fireworks have been postponed in Urbandale. They will now take place at 10 p.m. Monday, shot from Urbandale Middle School. All other Sunday July Fourth activities are still going on as planned.
    • The Iowa Cubs game today has been postponed until Monday, now a part of a doubleheader. The game will begin at 4:30 p.m. Fireworks will follow the second game, at 7:05 p.m.

    The 80/35 Music Festival will go on rain or shine. Check out the schedule on our 80/35 Music Festival guide.
    Ames’ fireworks will go off as planned at 10 p.m., organizers said this afternoon. However, if it’s raining or there is lightning, the show would be canceled. The Ames Jaycees, who organize the show, will make a decision at 9:45 tonight.
    So far, Indianola’s fireworks show set for dusk at Pickard Park on Iowa Highway 92 east of the city is on. But, if heavy rains move in, the show will be rescheduled for Monday night.

    Anybody know about Grimes? I'm assuming a similar fate as the rest of Central Iowa.

    Took the kids out to Prairie Meadows last night. They claim to have the best fireworks show in Iowa and I think they do.

    It appears that July 10 is out - ISU won't agree to it as Reiman Gardens has an event scheduled.

    At 10:00 on a Saturday night? Please tell me that Reiman Gardens doesn't have the authority to cancel a fireworks show because of a wedding reception.
