July 4th Parade and Holiday Activities - City of West Bend Offices are closed

Date: July 4, 2019

City Hall, Public Works, Sewer and Water Utilities offices are closed in observance of the holiday. 

Because of the recent storms, many people are asking about our alternate/contingency plans for the Fourth of July:

Our contingency plans are as follows:


  • If it is just raining, the parade will go on. 
  • If there is lightning/thunder prior to the start, we will delay the start of the parade.
  • If the parade has begun and there is lightning/thunder, the parade will be stopped.


  • If it is raining or storming (or threatening) we will wait to make any decision on cancellation until 8:15pm
  • Event staff (see below) will confer and & make the go or no-go decision at that time
  • Announcements will be posted on the Parks & Rec, the Police & the Fire Dept Facebook pages.
  • Because 80% of our staff on the 4th is volunteer, we will not have the infrastructure to do the fireworks on the 5th
  • We will announce a makeup or cancellation by the following week.
