Sturtevant's annual fireworks show and festival is Saturday

The Racine area has Fourth of July surrounded this year with fireworks celebrations. In addition to the city's fireworks display on Monday, July 5, the Village of Sturtevant is holding a day-long Fourth of July celebration on Saturday, July 3.

Sturtevant's festivities run from 2-11:30 p.m. and are free to the public. The schedule this year includes three bands, a jumping house for kids, and food and drink vendors.

Here's the schedule:

2-3pm - Racine Unified Summer Show Band
4-5pm - Great Lakes Navy Band
7:30pm - The Britins (a Beatles Tribute Band)
9:30pm - Melrose Fireworks Display

The celebration is held on Charles Street, just north of Highway 11 off of 90th Street. Parking on the grounds is $5.

If you'd like to help continue this Sturtevant tradition, watch for fireworks donation buckets at local businesses or donations can be made at Village Hall, 2801 89th Street, Sturtevant, Wisconsin 53177. Donations are needed to keep fireworks alive. Every little bit counts!
