4th of July fireworks will go on as planned in West Bend, parade and park activities canceled

WEST BEND -- The City of West Bend says its annual Horicon Bank Fourth of July Fireworks display will take place. However, there have been some changes.

    “We are proud to continue this important Independence Day tradition for our residents,” said Mayor Christophe E. Jenkins. “Thanks to our fireworks sponsor Horicon Bank for making this annual event possible.”

    After much consideration, the West Bend Fourth of July Parade and Regner Park activities will not take place this year. Riverside Park will be closed for the entire day in preparation for the fireworks display. There will be no concessions or public restrooms available for the event.
