MILWAUKEE (July 10, 2017) – It is South Shore Frolics time! The 68th annual Frolics for the 22nd year under the auspices of the Bay View Lions Club will be Friday, July 14 – Sunday, July 16 at South Shore Park in Bay View. To be clear, last year’s fireworks issues have been resolved. “We absolutely, positively will have our usual outstanding fireworks shows AND the outstanding grand finale fireworks BOTH Friday and Saturday nights at 10 p.m.,” stated Lyn Graziano, President of the Bay View Lions Club. “We will ‘shake the lake’ and ‘blow-up the sky’ with our always fantastic fireworks show combining both aerials and groundworks that have made the signature Frolics fireworks among the best in Southeast, Wisconsin.”

“The Bartolotta/ Wolverine Fireworks Company through our very generous sponsor, Jim Wing of W.B. Bottle Company in Bay View, has promised that they will not disappoint our anticipated huge crowds. Our fireworks will be awesome as always and we have so many other fun activities all weekend including music from the Frolics stage, a variety of food, an art show, a classic car show, a fish fry, a huge raffle, karaoke, a canine demo, kids workshops and free kids games, plus an outdoor Catholic Mass”, said Graziano. The Frolics are a big part of summer in Milwaukee, as the Frolics are the longest running free festival in the city. Here is the 2017 South Shore Frolics schedule.
