Appleton, WI – The skies over Appleton Memorial Park will be lit up on Wednesday, July 3rd to celebrate our nation’s independence. For over 80 years, the Appleton Area Jaycees have hosted this annual, family-friendly event. This year’s Title Sponsor is Festival Foods. Festivities begin at 4:00 p.m. with the local opening band Subject 2 Change followed by the headliner band Boogie & The Yo-Yo’z. The fireworks display begins at dusk and Boogie & The Yo-Yo’z will perform an encore set afterwards. Food and beverages will be available for purchase at the Pavilion. New this year - tickets must be used to purchase food and beverages. Tickets can be purchased at the ticket booth the day of the event. This show could not be made possible without generous sponsors and volunteers. Sponsors and volunteers are still needed for this event.
