Crosby-Ironton Fourth of July parade a hit

The parade route was modified because of the road project through Crosby and Ironton but ended where it normally does at Crosby Memorial Park on Serpent Lake.

The Crosby-Ironton Fourth of July parade was noon Sunday, July 4.

The parade route was modified because of the road project through Crosby and Ironton but ended where it normally does at Crosby Memorial Park on Serpent Lake.

Activities took place all day in the park, including a beer tent, food vendors, live music and more. A fireworks show was scheduled to start at dusk over Serpent Lake.
