Fourth of July Celebrations Thursday, July 4, 2024

Join The Merrill Hotel and Muscatine community as we celebrate Independence Day 2024!

The full day of programming kicks off with a Kid's Parade to the Musser Public Library in the morning, a Community Parade in the afternoon followed by Almost Fireworks Fest in Riverside Park, located directly across the street from The Merrill Hotel. Almost Fireworks Fest features activities for the whole family including bounce houses, face-painting, live music from local bands, and food trucks in the park.

At 7:30, join us on the stunning 6th floor balcony at The Merrill for a Stars & Stripes celebration like we've never seen before. This 21+ event will have a bar with a menu of signature cocktails and root beer floats, and shareable bites available to order. One $25 ticket will get you access to the balcony, a souvenir cup from Maxwell's on the River, and your first cocktail to help get your evening started out right.

Don't miss out. Experience Muscatine's fireworks show from the best view in town.
