Some changes are in store for Byron's annual Good Neighbor Days celebration, scheduled for this summer July 19-21.

An outdoor movie, an ice cream social, the presentation of the Good Neighbor Day Award and perhaps a small kids carnival will kick off festivities on Friday. Last year, the movie took place Thursday, with the parade and fireworks Friday and a kids carnival with vendors, plus the traditional fireman's dance Saturday.

For 2013, Saturday will still feature the dance, with no kids carnival nor vendors that day and with the parade and fireworks moving to Sunday.

Mary Blair-Hoeft, Byron's city administrator, said the Good Neighbor Days committee, which she is a member, made the changes to put emphasis on the best attended events and to remove the events that have been poorly attended, but have still been costly to run.

"One of the reasons was we weren't getting the support for the daily activities, and a lot of money was being expended," Blair-Hoeft said. "So we went with what worked."

For more than three decades, Good Neighbor Days has been a summertime favorite for Byron. It also includes the presentation of the Good Neighbor Day Award, given to annually to a resident for their contributions to the community.

Last year's winner was Marie Peterson.
