FORT MADISON – For more than a hundred years – 106, to be exact – the town of Fort Madison has ushered in the Fourth of July with the Charlie Korschgen Kiddie Parade. 2018 was no different as we saw kids of all ages enjoying the festivities along the parade route. The holiday will culminate with an exciting fireworks display over Riverview Park this evening at twilight. In the meantime, enjoy these photos and watch for more in Friday’s e–Edition.

Pen City Current wishes everyone a safe and happy holiday. Celebrate smart!
