It is better late than never for the village of Sister Bay, which will host its first ever Independence Day celebration on Saturday. The inaugural Sister Bay Freedom Celebration will feature family-friendly activities throughout the day before giving way to music and fireworks show in the evening. Village Administrator Zeke Jackson says he was approached by local businesses to do something special for what has been traditionally a slower weekend following the Fourth of July.
Jackson says the future of the event will depend on the feedback from business community members and the village board. Captain John and the Bedrock Bluegrass Band takes the stage at 6 p.m. before giving way to the fireworks show at dusk.
