Antigo parade, everything was great
space
Antigo’s Fourth of July party was sparked by a traditional parade that drew a big mid-week crowd.

Led by a veterans’ color guard, the parade ran on Edison Street south to 10th Avenue and then west to the high school parking lots, where the fireworks were launched just after dusk.

There were a number of veterans of the parade, including the Nagel family, who operate a town of Neva dairy farm. This year they passed out string cheese along the route as their treat. There were a few politicians, too, including Langlade County Sheriff Mark Westen and his family.

And that was just the tip of the iceberg on a hot and humid holiday evening.

The Antigo Community Band provided entertainment, there were fire trucks, and dozens of businesses and organizations were represented.

Jack Strasser, the city’s unofficial parade marshal, led the procession in a police squad car.

The city held an extended fireworks show from the high school lot, and could be seen in many parts of the community, which added to the attraction.

While the Antigo parade and fireworks were great patriotic fun, the season marking Independence Day is not over.

White Lake is holding its celebration on Saturday, rain or shine, and everyone is invited.

Launched by the 7:30 a.m. one-mile Possum Run and 5K and 10 K run at 8:15 a.m., the day moves on quickly to the start of the parade at noon on the south edge of the village. It is led, as always, by members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the American Legion color guard.

The grand marshal this year is Bob Graupner and the Poppy Princess, Gwendolyn Korchagin.

The parade will feature most of favorites, including the White Lake High School Band and this year, new to the procession is the Wisconsin Potato and Vegetable Growers Spudmobile and the Pink Heals Fire Truck.

The parade ends in the area of the pavilion on the shore of White Lake and it will be a busy location where food and drinks are served by local organizations. The building serves as the headquarters for the rest of the day’s events.

Mischief and Magic will supply free face painting and balloons, there will be a dunk tank and sawdust pile.

Music will be performed on the pavilion stage by Lovin’ Country at 1 p.m., Conscious Pilot at 5 p.m. and at about 9:30 p.m. the very popular fireworks show will be prepared.
