The City of Monroe will host its annual Independence Day Celebration on July First this year at Parks Williams Athletic Complex from 2-6 p.m.
This is the first time the City will host the celebration on the Saturday before the holiday in an effort to make the event more accessible to families.
The event space is the large, open field adjacent to the two ball fields which will host live music, food & beverage vendors, attractions and activities for people of all ages.
Accessible parking is available at the parking lots located near the Charlotte Avenue entrance and the soccer fields.
Additional parking is available at the Monroe Aquatics and Fitness Center and the lot behind the Water Park. Both lots are connected to the greenway system which leads guests on a safe, paved path to Parks Williams Athletic Complex.
Restrooms are located near the northern ball field. When attending the event, please make sure to follow the signage.
Please note fireworks will not be held Saturday. Instead, fireworks will be displayed on the Fourth of July in Downtown Monroe. There will not be an event held on July 4th.
