Central Iowa Locations for Early Independence Day Celebrations

Fireworks (WHO-HD)

IOWA  —  Independence Day is not until Tuesday, but many central Iowans are celebrating on Monday–and there are several events scheduled to keep you busy around town!

On Monday evening, you can check out fireworks at Prairie Meadows in Altoona, Reiman Gardens in Ames, and at the annual Yankee Doodle Pops concert in Des Moines.

The I-Cubs will also have a special holiday display after their game against Round Rock Express, and the City of West Des Moines will be holding an Independence Day parade at 6:30 p.m.
