Kick the day off celebrating America's freedom with Grafton's Annual Independence Day Parade at 11am. Join us in thanking, honoring and celebrating those who served and are currently serving our country. The parade winds through Downtown Grafton, so arrive early and set up your chairs, blankets! The parade route will start on 9th Avenue and end in the Paramount Plaza. Social distancing guidelines will be in place. We encourage you to wear a mask while walking through crowded spaces in Downtown Grafton.
Come to Lime Kiln Park in the afternoon for "The Best Fireworks North of Milwaukee". Grafton's firework show is the best in Ozaukee County, so bring your blankets, snacks and most patriotic gear as we light up the night sky over Grafton's historic Lime Kilns. The park will open at 5pm. We will offer a variety of activities such as a Cornhole Tournament for people 16+ and a Rock, Paper, Scissors Tournament for kids. Celebrate Grafton will host a food stand and bar to benefit the fireworks! Social distancing guidelines will be in place. We encourage you to wear a mask while walking through crowded spaces.
