The City of Storm Lake will be temporarily closing streets to accommodate the Memorial Day Parade of Flags event.

On Monday from 8:30 to 11:30am, the City will be closing the 200 block of East 5th Street from Erie Street to Cayuga Street, and the 600 block of Erie Street from East 5th to East 6th Street.

The City of Storm Lake asks citizens to exercise caution when driving in that area during the event on Monday.

The Memorial Day Parade of Flags event will begin at 10am on the Buena Vista County courthouse lawn. If there is inclement weather, the event would be moved to the Storm Lake High School auditorium.  The speaker will be Storm Lake native Ryan Hartwig, who retired from the U.S. Army earlier this year after nearly 28 years of service.
