Festival Foods to Sponsor Marshfield Fireworks on July 4

Since 2005, Festival Foods has sponsored Marshfield’s fireworks display, which returns Wednesday, July 4, during the City of Marshfield Independence Day Celebration at Marshfield Fairgrounds Park. The fireworks will begin at dusk, or 9:45 p.m.

“Festival Foods is proud to sponsor the fireworks here in Marshfield. It’s such a fun event for families and friends to share together and build memories,” said Marty Chy, Store Manager. “In my family, I’m not sure who gets more excited for the fireworks, me or my kids!”

“I am so glad that Festival Foods is sponsoring the fireworks show again this year like they have since 2005,” added Marshfield Mayor Bob McManus. “If you go to the fireworks show and look at the expressions on the faces of kids and adults alike you can truly see why this show means so much to us here in Marshfield.”

Festival Foods sponsored its first fireworks show in 1991. At that time, the Skogen family owned one Festival Foods location in Onalaska. Today, the family owns and operates 31 stores across Wisconsin and sponsors 22 fireworks shows in many of the communities it serves, with the inclusion of four new locations for 2018.

“We have a long history of supporting Fourth of July celebrations in Wisconsin and feel these fireworks shows help bring communities together,” said Mark Skogen, president and CEO of Festival Foods. “We are honored to sponsor the festivities in Marshfield.”
