The Pewaukee Lake fireworks will be at dusk (roughly 9:30pm), view them from Lakefront Park or the beach.  Come early to check out these pre-fireworks festivities: Beverages being sold (beer, wine, soda, water, popcorn) from the Lakefront Park building from 3:00 pm – 9:15 pm. Additional viewer feedback on locations for watching the fireworks: On the hill next to High St.

Bonus: the ability to avoid the big crowds and far enough away that the big booms aren’t that loud.
