IRON RIVER—This year’s Iron River Fourth of July parade will be following a new route when it steps off at 10 a.m. from the West Iron County High School parking lot.
The changes are because of construction on Genesee Street. The route goes north on Washington Avenue to Genesee Street, then turning west on Genesee. Then, it will turn north at River Avenue and then west on U.S. 2 (Adams Street). The parade will disband at the Windsor Center.
Registration will start at the high school at 8 a.m. The categories are as follows: adult organizations; non-profit organizations; municipalities (fire departments, towns, chambers); commercial/industrial; youth organizations; horses (individual, groups); decorated bikes (non-motorized); comic (individual, group); farm tractors; and classic and antique vehicles.
Premiums will be paid for first through third place: $50, $20 and $20, except for decorated bikes, which are $10, $8 and $6.
The West Side Veterans Council thanks all the individuals and businesses for their continued support of the parade and the Fourth of July fireworks.
