WAUWATOSA -- Kramp spent the morning in Wauwatosa for their Fourth of July parade.

About the parade (website)

The Wauwatosa Parade is one of the largest Independence Day Parades in the State of Wisconsin with usually over 100 units and 25,000 spectators. The parade begins at 9:00am from 80th & North Avenue (Just west of City Hall) and proceeds West to 104th Street which is a total of 1.7 miles.

Our goal in producing this parade each year is to celebrate our country and we are asking that all potential participants be specific on how their unit will accomplish this. It is equally important to follow the theme of the parade: “Hats Off to America” from the costumes, music, floats or any unit in the parade!
