The 66th annual South Shore Frolics, originally known as the South Shore Water Frolics, is all about community. If you live in Bay View, you'll be glad you do after checking out this old favorite.

The famous parade down Kinnickinnic Avenue will have kids scramble for some candy and the fireworks display that caps each night will make spectators gaze with excitement.

Proceeds go to providing support and services to the needy in the community and the Wisconsin Lions Camp.

Where: South Shore Park, 2900 South Shore Dr., Bay View.

Hours: Friday, 4-10 p.m.; Saturday, 1-10 p.m.; Sunday, 9:30 a.m.-9:30 p.m.

Admission: Free!

Highlights: The highlight of this festival is, of course, the fireworks, which close out the festival at 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and at 9:30 on Sunday. The spectacular fireworks can be seen from almost anywhere in Bay View, but are especially awe-inspiring when you're standing almost right under them. At the park, you will find kids games, a fish fry, chainsaw artists and live music. Sunday's classic car show is also fun.
