Weyauwega is a wonderful community to conduct business, escape to for a weekend or call home.
Fireworks Show July 3rd
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The City of Weyauwega Council on Monday, June 15 during their regular monthly meeting unanimously voted to move forward with a Fireworks Show on July 3, 2020. Council felt the importance of having something for the community but noted there would need to be some changes to try and prevent the spread of the corona virus.
Therefore, the Fireworks show for 2020 will take place near the middle of Lake Weyauwega in the heart of the city. This option allows for more community residents to view from their homes and doesn’t encourage a large gathering with other activities as in the past. The Fireworks show will have more powerful fireworks that will rise higher in the sky for better viewing from all directions and there will not be any ground type fireworks.
Furthermore, there are several businesses that are in support of the show going forward that they are allowing those that would like a closer view the ability to use their parking lots. The gravel semi staging area at Agropur, gravel lot at Taylor Cheese, city lot by the vacant IGA and St. Peter Lutheran Church and School paved lots. We simply ask those that use those lots respect their property, stay by their vehicle practicing social distancing to not gather with others from outside their family and not leave any waste or materials behind. We also will close down Parkview Lane by Kaminski Recreation area and Peterson Park on the north shore of the lake.
We realize that some may appreciate and welcome the change and others have become accustomed to the regular show at the fairgrounds. However, all options needed to be fully examined and the final decision was in the best interest for safety of our citizens and community while still providing the event.
The show will begin at dusk between 9:30-9:45. Enjoy the show!
