Crowd enjoys Independence Day at White Lake, parade big again
space
With weather conditions perfect, the morning started early at White Lake for the Independence Day celebration, a tradition in the eastern Langlade County community.

It was a blend of a giant family reunion and fun for a huge crowd that lined the parade route at noon for what has become a White Lake trademark

Long before the parade was lined up at Bissell and Church streets, the day was already well underway.

A one-mile Possum run started at 7:30 a.m. and the more serious 5K and 10 K runs got started at 8:15 a.m.

Shortly after the runs were rolling, things were happening at the lakeside pavilion with the pies coming out on the tables, the beer, soda and water dumped into the tanks of ice water and grills fired up for the crowds to come.

And they did.

The streets were lined with parade-goers and fun-seekers by 11 a.m. staking out positions along the route and preparing for a great day.

At noon the parade got rolling with two color guards, one from the American Legion post and the other from the Veterans of Foreign Wars, and the grand marshal of the shindig, Harold Dobrinska.

The Poppy Princess, Reese Stoffel, also got a ride in a convertible along the parade route.

The parade was a walk down memory lane. Certainly the faces have changed, but the White Lake High School Band marched and performed and the floats and entries from businesses were familiar, too.

Senator Tom Tiffany was walking the route meeting and greeting his constituents in the White Lake area and beyond.

There were dozens of historic banners representing families from the White Lake, Evergreen and Wolf River areas, led on the route by the Oatmans.

The pink ambulance and fire truck from Manitowoc County, carrying the title, “Pink Heals,” also returned for the 2019 parade.

The U.S. Coast Guard, White Lake ATV Club, Badger Ranch, Heistad Farms, Risen Savior Lutheran Church, search and rescue teams from the area and plenty more units were included,

There were more parade entries and they all ended the run in the area of the pavilion, where the food, refreshments and fun were underway.

The entertainment started with Don and Rosie Malitz performing as Lovin' Country at 1 p.m., just about the time the parade ended, and their show was followed by a show called Mischief & Magic.

Boombox took the pavilion stage at 5 p.m., the boat was held at 8:30 p.m. and the fireworks were shot as dusk turned to darkness.

It was simply a good day to be in White Lake.
