Since 1911, the City of Milwaukee has provided its citizens, neighbors and visitors a safe and friendly celebration of America’s independence.
In parks throughout the city, families and friends gather for picnics, games, doll buggy parades and talent contests. At night the sky is filled with fireworks bursting all over town. Celebrations were held at:
Humboldt Park Contest Winners
Dr. M L King, Jr. Park
poster contest rules
2013 Poster Contest winners
Celebrate the 4th of July safely! Fireworks are illegal in the City of Milwaukee.
