City announces July 4 celebration plans
For the City Times
WISCONSIN RAPIDS – On July 4, the city has planned a fireworks display which will be launched from the Wisconsin River in downtown Wisconsin Rapids.
The display will begin at approximately 9:30 p.m. and may be viewed along most of the riverbank and downtown area, except for the launch and safety zone on the western bank of the river from the foot of the Grand Avenue Bridge to south of the Moravian Church.
The DJ will start playing music at 6 p.m., and the National Anthem will be sung by “Rhapsody” before the fireworks show begins.
Food and refreshment vendors will be located on West Grand Avenue on the west side of the river, and on Second Street South, south of East Grand Avenue, on the east side of the river.
The Wisconsin Rapids City Band will perform outside of the Centralia Center, 220 Third Avenue South, 7-8 p.m.
In the event of inclement weather, stay tuned to local media and communications outlets for information. If possible, a decision to cancel the display will be made by 3 p.m. that day. The alternate date will be July 5.
