The Village of Shorewood is coordinating a Fourth of July celebration for the community in 2021. Currently, Fourth of July Coordinator Sarah DeNeve is accepting proposals from interested community groups, businesses, entertainers, bands, and vendors to be in the parade. The parade will be the same route on Oakland Avenue (from Kensington Blvd. to Edgewood Ave.) starting at 3:00 p.m. You can contact Sarah at email@example.com..
For 2021, fireworks will occur at Atwater Park. We strongly encourage all community members to wear a mask to assure everyone remains safe while attending this community event, especially those who are not yet eligible to receive the vaccination such as children 11 and younger. Originally, the Village was coordinating with Milwaukee County Parks to have the fireworks event at Estabrook Park to provide easier ability for social distancing with more open space available. Since the Village applied for the special event permit through Milwaukee County Parks, a number of guidelines have changed, including the CDC's guidelines for face masks for those that have been vaccinated and the Village's face covering ordinance. As staff continued to meet with Milwaukee County Parks, there were other logistical challenges that began to arise with Estabrook Park as a site location.
