Fourth of July and Five Days of Celebrations in Coralville - 4th Fest

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Cardinal Realty ~ 319-400-0268

4thFest in Coralville has become quite the tradition attracting thousands of visitors and residents every year.

 4thFest 2012 starts on Saturday June 30 giving us 5 days of fun for this year's 4th of July celebrations. Most of the activities are free and take place at S.T. Morrison Park in Coralville. Events include a 5k run/walk, carnival, food and free concerts. The highlight of course is the 4thFest Parade starting at 10.00am on July 4th and the Fireworks after dark. The 4thFest Parade starts at the Geico - Macgregor's Parking Lot on 22nd Ave, Coralville with the same route as last year. <<-- Link to route. The Firework Display is after dark at S.T. Morrison Park. Any of the streets around 5th St in Coralville will get you a good view for that.
