A look ahead, featuring Antigo Daily Journal advertisers, follows:

WHITE LAKE

INDEPENDENCE DAY

As usual, White Lake will go all-out for Independence Day, with activities centered at the lakeside pavilion on Saturday.

It will be a great time to fuel up for the Possum Chase with the one-mile fun run at 7:30 a.m. and the 5K and 10K at 8:15 a.m.

The parade will begin at noon, lining up at Bissell and Church streets. Grand marshal will be Harold Dobrinska with Reese Stoffel as poppy princess. Units will include the White Lake American Legion and VFW color guard, high school band, Pink Heals memorial fire truck and an array of businesses and organizations.

There will be a boat parade at 8:30 p.m. and fireworks at about 9:30 p.m.
