Cannon County, Town of Woodbury, City of Auburntown, and our business partners are inviting you to the Cannon Communities’ 4th of July Celebration tonight at Dillon Park in Woodbury.
The park will open at 6:00 p.m. for the festivities. We will have at least 500 hot dogs, cold drinks, and watermelon free to the guest sometime after the park opens. We will also have games to play.
Our first musical group will be Christine Parri with Dusty Parker, Ryan Madora, and John Salaway and they will take the stage at 6:30 p.m. and they will play their own music and some classic blues.
Our second band is Eldorado Special with Bruce Dolberry, Quincey Meeks, Chase Wasldrup, Marc Williams and John Salaway and they will play through the fireworks show. This group will be playing classic rock and roll and patriotic songs. They will play throughout the Fireworks show.
You will need to bring your own chairs or blankets to sit on. You are also invited to bring your own picnic baskets. You will need to find your own parking but we hope to have the lot across from the park for you to use. We will have mule drawn wagons taking people from the square to the park.
Admission to the Celebration is free, but we are asking for you to bring a non-perishable food item for each person coming to the Celebration. Volunteers from the Food Bank will be at the front of the park to collect the food.
Your donations will be given to the Cannon County Emergency Food Bank to help residents of Cannon County. The Food Bank is running low on the following items: flour, sugar, cooking oil, powdered milk, instant potatoes, peaches, pinto beans, cream of chicken soup, cream of mushroom soup, canned meat items, and peanut butter.
