After last year's cancellation of Independence Day activities, large crowds gathered in nearby Maynard for festivities in celebration of the day, despite the high heat and humidity. Montevideo area residents gathered to watch the annual Maynard fireworks show, one of the only in the area as the Prairie's Edge Casino & Resort fireworks show was canceled this year.
