Official Fourth of July Parade Route in Germantown
It is now official. The regular parade route for the Germantown Fourth of July Parade will be used again this year. There will be no change as had been reported earlier in the year.
Because of the closing of Park Street due to repaving this summer, plans to alter the parade route were thought to be necessarry. That route would have eliminated the normal route to Firemen’s Park via Park Street. However, the paving of Park Street has been pushed back by four days to eliminate the need to alter the regular parade route. Parties on Park Street will not have to be canceled. The parade will go up Park Street to Firemen’s Park on July 4.
The regular parade route starts near the Germantown Post Office at Francese Drive, at about 12 Noon, proceeding north to Hwy 145, left onto Main Street and continuing down Main Street to Park Street, and then right unto Park Street at Bub’s Irish Pub and continues up to Firemen’s Park.
The Germantown Fourth of July Celebration is well known to be one of the finest small town festivities in Wisconsin. The day-long activities include the Germantown Community Parade, a giant picnic in Firemen’s Park and the famous community fireworks display, the best one in Southeastern Wisconsin. All events are planned and hosted by the Germantown Kiwanis Club.
The Kiwanis Club of Germantown is now looking for community partners to help sponsor the Fourth of July Celebration 2019. Local businesses, clubs and government groups have traditionally provided much of the funding needed to put on this community event. If you are interested in having your business name credited for sponsoring parts of the Fourth of July Celebration please contact Lynn Grgich, by phone 262-347-9901, or by email: [email protected]
The picnic in Firemen’s Park will proceed as usual with park activities, food, performances and games all afternoon and early evening. Entertainers include:
Accompany of Kids, 1:30-2:15 PM and 3:15-3:45 PM
Downtown Harrison, 5:00-9:00 PM
Germantown Fireworks are all coordinated by the Germantown Kiwanis Club with the help of interested organizations and businesses in the Germantown community.
