Antigo Area Weekend Activities
space
This year, Independence Day is the holiday that just keeps on giving.

While Antigo’s big parade and fireworks were held on Wednesday, the biggest celebration in the area—at White Lake—is coming up on Saturday, with plenty of fun assured.

There are more events on the docket as well, including the annual summer picnic at the museum, delicious chicken barbecue in Elcho, and of course the continuation of Music in the Park, Antigo’s acclaimed tradition.

A look ahead, taken from the Antigo Daily Journal’s advertising columns, follows:

WHITE LAKE CELEBRATION

White Lake goes all out for its party and this year’s celebration promises to be more of the same.

The parade starts at noon. Bob Graupner is grand marshal with Gwendolyn Korchagin as poppy princess. Participants will include the White Lake American Legion, VFW Color Guard, White Lake High School Band, Spudmobile, Pink Heals Memorial Fire Truck and an array of businesses and organizations.
