Mayor Craig A. Moe and the Laurel 4th of July Committee are reminding visitors that there will be NO Backpacks/Bookbags, NO Coolers, NO Alcohol and NO Fireworks allowed. Also, for the safety of your pets, there will be NO Pets allowed at the celebration, so please leave them at home.

In light of limited parking areas, it is recommended that you carpool with family/friends and allow enough time to locate available parking. When parking, please be considerate of the surrounding neighborhoods/businesses and their homeowners/patrons. Please be patient the day of the event since there will be large crowds.

Weather is always a factor the day of the event, so please follow our Social Media sites – Laurel City OEM on Facebook and @LaurelCityOEM on Twitter - and we will post any updates to the schedule of events as they become available.

Thank you and have a safe and happy Independence Day!
