Hometown Day


A 100-unit parade at 10am kicks off Waupaca's annual Hometown Day celebration on July 4. The parade forms at the north end of Main Street, proceeding south on Main to a break-up point at Lake Street. After the parade, the Knights of Columbus offer a chicken barbecue (until gone) at South Park's upper level. The Kiwanis run a concession at the park's lower level throughout the day. Weather permitting, Waupaca's Chain Skiers offer a water ski show at Rainbow Lake on the Waupaca Chain of Lakes, viewable by boat or from the grounds of the Wisconsin Veterans Home, County QQ. Back at South Park, fireworks begin at 9:30pm.
