With flooding being a concern all along the Missouri River, Hermann's Fourth of July celebration could be moved off the riverfront and other downtown locations.

Jim Grebing, Hermann's tourism director, said Monday the city is looking at "Plan B" in the event that the river floods the areas where Independence Day events are held.

The Hermann Area Chamber of Commerce sponsors Fourth of July activities--games and food at the Riverfront Park, a parade that ends at First and Gutenberg, a band concert at the amphitheatre, and fireworks at the riverfront, which has drawn upwards of 5,000 people annually.

"We would obviously like to keep it down at the riverfront, but we are planning an alternate site in the event of flooding," said Grebing. "We are looking at options and seeking approval to hold it elsewhere in town if those areas are flooded."

Grebing said Fourth of July activities will not be canceled. He said one of the options is moving the games, band concert and fireworks out to the high school campus.

Traditionally, the band concert is held at the Clara E i t m a n n - M e s s m e r Amphitheatre on Gutenberg Street, and that area floods frequently.

Grebing also said the parade, which starts at 4 p.m., could be modified, and a decision to move the events on the Fourth would be made sometime next week.

The Army Corps of Engineers has released massive amounts of water from six dams in the upper Missouri River basin.

Any significant rain could worsen the flooding especially if it falls in Nebraska, Iowa or northwest Missouri, which are downstream of the dams.

The river is expected to rise to a foot over flood stage on Sunday, June 26. Flood stage at Hermann is 21 feet, and it was at 21.56 feet at 4 p.m. Monday, June 20.

The Corps predicts the river will remain high until at least August.
