Fire in the Sky: Fourth of July in Avoca, Iowa

July 4, 2023


City of Avoca

Join Avocans for an iconic small town 4th of July celebration. Events on Avoca Main Street, the charming historical downtown, begin at 11 a.m. and include a kids pedal tractor pull, classic auto show, food vendors, and midway games to fundraise for our community's Legion Hall restoration project. At 2 p.m. hundreds line the street for one of the best parades in southwest Iowa. Celebrations continue at Edgington Memorial Park, and conclude at dusk with a fireworks display at the Avoca CountryView Golf Course, visible from almost anywhere in the city. This year's parade theme is Fire in the Sky, and the Avoca Volunteer Fire Department is our Grand Marshall.
