Muskego 4th of July Celebration Announcement from the Water Bugs:

The Muskego Water Bugs, in association with the Little Muskego Lake District, will be hosting the annual July 3rd fireworks show. The fireworks will be launched from a barge on Little Muskego Lake with viewing occurring from land and water. Limited parking will be available on city streets surrounding the lake, however there will not be any parking for vehicles with trailers on city streets. Park Arthur will be open for parking and viewing at 2:30pm.

Food and beverages will be available. Garbage cans, hot coal receptacles, and porta potties will be available. The Muskego Water Bugs will direct the parking and will ask for a $5 donation to help offset the cost of the event. Viewing of the fireworks can occur from anywhere on Idle Isle. All traffic will enter Park Arthur from Martin Drive and will exit on College Ave following the fireworks. No re-entry will be allowed. 

We are happy that we are able to continue the tradition of the July 3rd festival, show, and fireworks at Idle Isle in 2023. Funding for the event is provided by the Water Bugs and the Little Muskego Lake District as well as some generous donors through the Friends of the Water Bugs on Facebook.
