Your Guide to Fireworks This Fourth of July Weekend

While there won’t be fireworks at the lakefront, there will be plenty of fireworks in Milwaukee communities.

Nevertheless, there are still countless community celebrations taking place in the Greater Milwaukee area to get your fix of fireworks fun. Grab your sparklers and some grilled bites because we’ve compiled a list of local firework shows in the area.
