The activities kick off on Monday, July 4th with the Independence Day parade at 4:00 p.m. The parade route will be the same as in previous years, starting at W 8th Street and Washington Street weaving through town and ending at 1st and Gutenberg Street. The Hermann Police Department and assorted volunteers will have the streets temporarily blocked to traffic during the parade which is expected to last approximately an hour. Attendees may observe the parade along Washington St, W 6th Street, Market Street, E 4th Street, Schiller St and W 1st Street.
The Municipal Band will be performing at the Amphitheater in the 400 block of Gutenberg Street beginning at 7:30 pm until just prior to the fireworks display at River Front Park which will begin at dark.
We are continuing to monitor the rising Missouri River. Should the water rise to a level that would interfere with the event, Tourism Director Jim Grebing has been working on an alternate location for the event. The river is predicted to begin a slow rise on Monday, June 27 to a level about a foot over flood stage by Friday, July 1st. That water level is not expected to impact the event which will then go on as advertised in the river front park. Should the water level change drastically, the event would be moved to the alternate location, the details of which are still being addressed at this time. We will make a concerted effort to notify everyone as the details are ironed out should a change of location become necessary.
On the river front, like the last couple of years, Wharf Street will be closed to all vehicle traffic from Gutenberg Street to Schiller Street for the event. River Front Park and Wharf Street will be closed for vehicles except for the event organizers and vendors after 5:00 pm. There will be concessions made for those with handicapped parking permits to access the appropriate parking places within the park on a first come basis. Attendees are encouraged to bring their lawn chairs and set anywhere along the south side of Wharf Street or in River Front Park to enjoy the show.
