The festivities begin with the kiddie parade at 3:45 pm : pre-registration is not required, but children should gather on the sidewalks near Redman Realty (corner of Park Street West and Hwy. 51 South) by 3:15 pm.
The main parade starts at 4 pm and will honor our country and Minocqua’s anniversary with the theme: Celebrating 125 Years of Timber, Trains and Tourism. Bring your lawn chair and watch the horses, floats, fire trucks, dancers, antique automobiles along with marching bands pass by on Oneida Street in downtown Minocqua.
After the parade head to Torpy Park for a free musical performance by the Lakeland Community Concert Band at 5:30 pm. The Min-Aqua Bats will perform a special show for the July 4th crowd beginning at 7 pm at the Aqua Bowl on Lake Minocqua. Come a little early to watch the Boat Parade pass by the Aqua Bowl at 6:15 p.m. After watching the parade and the water ski show, head to your favorite viewing area on land or water and settle in for the remainder of the night. Just remember ~ if you can see the blue water tower in downtown Minocqua – you will see the fireworks.
