What a day!
We have done a lot to enhance our July 4th festivities in recent years — all without a single additional taxpayer dollar. That is due to our sponsors.
Thanks for stepping up! I’m looking at you, presenting sponsor Max A. Sass and Sons Funeral Homes, as well as TASC Services, South Milwaukee Ace, Nicholson Realty, Inc., Caterpillar Inc., Mara’s Sewing House, Sprecher Brewery, Beer Capitol Distributing, South Milwaukee Recreation Department and Milwaukee County Parks. And thanks to MJ Media for all the design and printing.
With their support, we were able to recognize the kids for their work on their bikes and costumes, offer games and bouncy houses, serve 1,100 hot dogs (up from 900 last year) and 1,000 cups of ice cream, deliver terrific live music throughout the day and finish with a fireworks show featuring the best finale I’ve seen at a parks event.
It was maybe the biggest crowd I’ve seen at our July 4th festivities since I’ve lived here, and I’m already can’t wait for 2018. Happy Fourth!
