Kiwanis Looking for Sponsors for Fourth of July Celebration
The Germantown Fourth of July Festivities are well known to be one of the finest small town celebrations 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. Kiwanis will credit these groups in their advertising and promotions for the events. 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]
New parade routes are being considered for this year’s Fourth of July Parade here in Germantown. Because of the closing of Park Street due to repaving this summer, it will be necessary to alter the parade route. Current plans are to use the same route as the Christmas Festival with the parade staring near the Germantown Post Office at Francese Drive north to Hwy 145, left to Main Street and then continue all the way down Main Street to Squire Drive. The parade will turn left unto Squire continuing down to Life Church and ending there. Usually the parade turns right unto Park Street at Bub’s Irish Pub and continues up to Firemen’s Park.
The picnic in Firemen’s Park will proceed as usual with park activities, food, performances and games all afternoon and early evening. With the completion of the Gehl Performing Arts Pavilion at the Park this year there will be more music provided than usual.
Kiwanis has announced that it has increased its budget for Fireworks in the Park this year to make sure it maintains its claim to having the best local fireworks display in Southeastern Wisconsin. Germantown Fireworks are all coordinated by the Germantown Kiwanis Club with the help of interested organizations and businesses in the Germantown community.
