I've held on to hope that the world would be back to normal by the 4th of July, but it doesn't look real promising. With many festivities canceled, here's what you can expect this Independence Day in Idaho. 

Middleton has announced that they are canceling their 4th of July parade, although they will still hold a fireworks show according to idahonews.com.

In Bannock County they have canceled their 4th of July celebrations all together according to eastidahonews.com, saying they still encourage people to celebrate on their own and look forward to bringing people together next year.

Idaho Falls has also announced they are canceling this years 4th of July parade according to the Idaho State Journal. 

Rexburg is going agains the grain and planning to hold a full blown 4th of July rodeo in addition to a parade and fireworks show.

Meridian also plans to move forward with their 4th of July plans with celebrations at Storey Park.

As summer kicks off we're still adjusting to this "new normal" and I think it's safe to say that normal won't be normal any time soon. It's going to be a slow process before life looks anything like it did before COVID-19.
