Summerfest 2018 got off to a soggy start with rain during the morning on July 4, delaying the Parade of Flags and Community Spirit Award ceremony a bit. Attendance was down by quite alot at those events, but the show did go on, albeit without a sound system, due to the fact that electricity and water do not mix well. Many of those in attendance stood under umbrellas as 28 new flags were dedicated. Marcy Sommervold, one of the Parade of Flags organizers, said that although this year was to be the last, five extra holes had been placed, therefore there will be at least one more year of the Parade of Flags.
