While Sheboygan’s official Independence Day activities have been canceled for 2020, the Sheboygan Police Department wishes to remind residents that there are several ordinances that may impact how they choose to celebrate the 4th this year. First, due to the cancellation, there will be no fires allowed on city beaches outside of the permanent fire rings. As in past years, excavations such as pits or trenches are prohibited on the beach as well. Possession and consumption of alcohol is also not allowed on any city beach, and without the festival events at Deland Park there will be no alcohol allowed in the grass area to the south of the pier walkway this year. Alcohol is allowed in Cleveland Park, End Park, Evergreen Park, King Park (excluding the beach), Kiwanis Park, Lakeview Park, and Veterans Park.
