The Muskego Water Bugs, in association with the Little Muskego Lake District, will be hosting the annual July 3rd fireworks show. With respect to the COVID-19, the city of Muskego has closed Idle Isle for the ski show and viewing of the fireworks. The fireworks will be launched from a barge on Little Muskego lake with viewing occurring from land and water, as possible. Limited parking will be available on city streets surrounding the lake, however there will not be any parking for vehicles with trailers. Park Arthur will be open for parking and viewing beginning at 4pm. The concession stand will be open for food and beverage purchase, featuring Matty’s Bar and Grille and Pop’s Kettle Corn. Garbage cans, hot coals receptacles and porta potties will be available. The Muskego Water Bugs will direct the parking and will ask for a $5 donation to help offset the cost of the event. Viewing of the fireworks can occur from anywhere in the park, including the sledding hill, but excluding the baseball fields. All traffic will enter Park Arthur from Martin Drive, and will exit on College Ave following the fireworks. No re entry will be allowed. 


We are happy that we are able to continue the tradition of fireworks and regret that we are not able to provide a more centralized viewing experience for all Muskego residents. Funding for the event is provided by the Water Bugs and the Little Muskego Lake District as well as some generous donors through the Friends of the Water Bugs on Facebook. We hope that all residents understand the current situation, will find a way to enjoy the show this year, and will be back at the beach next year to watch the Water Bugs perform a July 3rd ski show and fireworks display.
