The City of Milwaukee will hold Independence Day fireworks and celebrations on July 5.

The announcement comes after Milwaukee County said last week that it would be canceling its July 3 lakefront fireworks show because it did not have enough workers.

Daytime celebrations will take place at Humboldt Park, the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center and Enderis Playfield, following a tradition that began in 1911, according to a statement from the city. 

Milwaukee County parks that will host fireworks are Alcott, Gordon, Humboldt, Jackson, Lake, Lincoln, Mitchell, Noyes, Washington, and Wilson.

The celebrations are beginning again after the city lifted its COVID-19 health orders on Tuesday, according to the city.
