Trophies were awarded in six categories for this year’s Fourth of July parade in Charles City.
Judging coordinated by the Charles City Area Chamber of Commerce named Cambrex Charles City as Best Commercial/Business entry and Immaculate Conception Church as Best Organization/Non-profit group. Other winners included Bob Legel Circus Wagons for Best Open Class and the National 19th Amendment Society as Best Antique Vehicle. The Mayor’s Choice award went to Sew That and the Chamber’s Choice award went to the Charles City Rotary Club.
Since the July 4th holiday fell on Sunday, this year’s parade was moved up a day to Saturday, July 3rd to avoid conflict with church services.
