Fourth on the Shore is a huge celebration of Independence Day in downtown Manitowoc. There are live bands, craft vendors, food trucks, and a big parade at 10 a.m. This event happens in conjunction with Subfest at the Wisconsin Maritime Museum (admission is only $5 for the day and tours of the USS Cobia WWII submarine are available!), an open-to-the-public party at the Manitowoc Yacht Club, free lighthouse tours of the Manitowoc Breakwater Lighthouse,  and the Salmon Derby. Stay until dusk for a fantastic fireworks show over Lake Michigan presented by Festival Foods.
