At the start of the parade the Pigs motorcycle group presented the committee with a check for $5000.  If you see any of these wonderful people around town shake their hand and tell them thanks for saving the parade.  Not only did they raise money for us but they help many organizations in town.  A great group of guys and I thank you from my heart.  

 As has been printed recently, will we have a parade next year?  I am here to tell you the answer is yes for next year and yes for every year after that.  The committee has decided to stay in place and work even harder to bring more and better events for the 4th.  We need your help!  Not only do we need more money but we need more citizens to get involved in helping us put on the events of the day.  We would love to have our youth get involved, as I am sure they have many ideas we could use.  If you want to join please call me Dan at 218-206-4239 and I will take your info.  We will start meeting again in January 2017.
Thanks to everyone who helped this year you all did a  job and we hope to see you next year.

I want to address any rumors that may be circulation around town.  2016 will have the same activities as last year plus we are trying to add more things for the kids.  We have enough money to cover this year.  It is the upcoming years that may be effected.  Each year we would receive $6000 from the Tourism & Development Committee (Chamber).  Our 4th of July festivities brings thousands of people to Superior so the Chamber should help.  The money comes from the Hotel, Motel tax the city charges.  Now the chamber is changing the qualifications needed to get the money so I believe we will not qualify.  One good thing that has happened is the Pigs Motorcycle group has 
stepped up to help us raise the money needed for next year.  I was hopping more businesses would help, as they are the direct beneficiaries of all the people coming here on the 4th.  It is sad that they 
can't find it in there heart to help us more.  Anyways thank you to the Pigs, you folks are the best!!!!

We are currently working on a Facebook page.

History of the 4th of July Committee

In 1996, there was no parade, fire works or any other community-wide event.  With that knowledge, a small group of dedicated citizens had the idea of collecting monetary donations so they could organize some events for the 4th.   A small amount of money was raised, enough to send out mailers advertising the parade and looking for any and all to build a float, bring their horses or whatever they wanted to join the parade.  In a following year, the group added a car show to the day's activities and that turned out to be a huge success and still is.  Fireworks were added next and each subsequent year sees a bigger and better show.  Several of the same people that started this event are still working to make the 4th the special day that it is.  The committee begins planning In January, discussing various themes and nominations for Grand Marshal(s).  Our themes have ranged from “Neighbors Helping Neighbors” which encompassed a food drive to “It’s A Grand Old Flag” when small USA flags were handed out.  Choosing a Grand Marshal(s) is the result of nominations of community members who have given their time and talents to the betterment of this community. 

Committee meetings are open to anyone and new members are warmly welcomed! Meetings are currently held the third Wednesday of each month at 6:00 P.M.  Meetings are at VIP on Tower Ave
