Egg Harbor 4th of July Set

Just received this revised press release:


For Immediate Release

Egg Harbor Independence Day Weekend Festivities Include the UW-Madison Marching Band and a Wide Range of Live Music

Vonnie Callsen, co-owner of Main Street Market, announced that the UW-Madison Marching Band will be part of the Fourth of July Parade in Egg Harbor. “The band members will ride on a flatbed. After the parade, they're going to play a ‘5th quarter’ either on the patio at Main Street Market (on the Hwy 42 side of store) or somewhere in Harborview Park with all the concessions.” Jim and Nancy Forbes are responsible for this special appearance. The parade begins promptly at 1:30pm on Sunday, July 4.

Two “First Annual” events will take place following the parade. First, is a bed race with lodging establishments competing with their own custom-made beds. The other is a fundraising benefit for the Egg Harbor Historical Society - the First Annual Hotdog Eating Contest - sponsored by Watcha Have and Triangle Distributing, which will take place after the parade in Harborview Park.

Egg Harbor fireworks start at dusk on Saturday, July 3. Food and refreshments will be available in Harborview Park at 7809 State Hwy. 42 starting at 2pm and the Mango Brothers perform starting at 5pm. Live musical performances at venues in and near Egg Harbor include Big Mouth & the Power Tool Horns, Rick & Mick, Nathan Xander and Witchouse, and Glen Navis. All performances are free to the public. The weekend wraps up on July 4 at the Peg Egan PAC at 6pm for the best of Blues, Folk, Pop, Swing, Americana and World Music featuring Chris Kasper, Joe and Vicki Price, Sara Thomsen, and the Jennie DeVoe Band.
