The event begins at 6:45 p.m. in front of the Common Pleas Courthouse on Spanish Street. Festivities include patriotic music from the Cape Girardeau Municipal Band, a Naturalization Ceremony, Southeast Missourian Spirit of America Award and a fireworks display on the Mississippi River. This year marks the second consecutive year for the local Naturalization Ceremony. A free shuttle will be provided by Isle Casino from the Show Me Center to downtown. Handicapped parking will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis at the city parking lots adjacent to Broadway and Main Streets, as well as at Broadway and Water Streets. The program will be broadcast live here on 960 KZIM and 1400 KSIM and at 9 p.m., all River Radio stations will play patriotic music as the fireworks commence. No personal fireworks will be allowed onsite at the event. In case of inclement weather, the fireworks will move to July 5, and the naturalization and Spirit of America program will remain on July 4 and move inside the Common Pleas Courthouse.
