What better way could you spend the 4th of July than on Kenosha’s beautiful shores of Lake Michigan on a dock with your dog. The festival has food, activities for the kids, live bands and more.

We would strongly urge folks to arrive early to find a good parking spot. Parking is on the street. There is plenty of shady crating space.

If your dog loves the water, you’ll want to try Pier Pups Canine Deck Jumping. Welcoming beginner through pro- jumpers, Pier Pups is all about having fun. The Pier Pups staff is patient and experienced with novice dogs and will take the time to make sure each dog is comfortable with the dock and the pool.
