IMPORTANT NOTICE! On the 4th of July - There will be NO motorized vehicles allowed on Superior Avenue other than for use during the Main Parade. Superior Avenue will be closed to thru traffic from the Baraga Armory to M-38 beginning at 8:00. No four wheelers, side by sides, golf carts, etc. other than those used by committee members only or by emergency personnel. Superior Avenue will continue to be closed from Homestead Graphics to M- 38 after the Main Parade until the conclusion of the fireworks. Due to the number of children playing in the streets, planned events in the street and complaints by citizens from previous years, no motorized vehicles will be allowed other then those used by Committee members. This is for your protection as much as for the children. Thank you for your cooperation as we strive to keep the kids safe.
