    With the cancellations and the summer closings of pools, parks and celebrations (ie Minnesota State Fair), I wanted to create a post for discussion and announcements (with links please) of closings, restrictions and possible openings of events, and traditional places that one would attend during the summer in Iowa.

    For example I am really worried about Fourth of July celebrations in Iowa.

    City of Ames has already canceled a bunch of the traditional summer events - including 4th of July parade (which is a big deal given an election year) and fireworks.

    Knoxville just cancelled the Knoxville Nationals. They said the State would not approve their 50% capacity plan and was only going to allow 7000 fans.
