Throughout this week, from Ashalnd to Wauwatosa, there’s ample opportunity for family fun and fireworks, as this list of 4th of July festivities across Wisconsin proves!

Wisconsin’s Fourth of July celebrations are as vibrant and exciting as any across the nation.

As Americans mark the day when the United States declared its independence from British rule in 1776, Wisconsinites join in the fun.

The day symbolizes freedom, democracy, and the values upon which the nation was founded and around which most of us can agree.

Most Wisconsinites celebrate this day with patriotic pride, gratitude for their country’s heritage, and a sense of unity as we come together to commemorate the birth of this nation.

The Fourth of July is a time for reflection the principles of liberty.

We do so while enjoying fireworks, family gatherings, and community events.
