Perhaps no one in the Northland embodies the all-American holiday of the 4th of July like the City of Superior.  For many years, the community has put together an impressive schedule of parades, events, and fireworks to say "Happy Birthday, America"!  2019 will not disappoint.

Organizers of of the Superior 4th of July Celebration are proud to announce their plans for the communities 22nd annual event.  And no matter what your favorite thing to do, they have included something for just about everyone and every age level.

One important note about the 2019 4th of July Celebration is that the location of the annual parade has moved; the route is moving back to its original Belknap Street location.  (The route of the parade moved to the Midtown area of Hammond Avenue and 28th Street for the last few years as first Tower Avenue and then later Belknap Street was worked on.  Now that the final steps of the Belknap Street project are complete, organizers have moved the parade back to the downtown neighborhood.
