Sheboygan PD asks for patience as thousands are expected at the lake


SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (WFRV) – Sheboygan police want those planning to celebrate to know some rules about alcohol, boats and bonfires before the 4th of July.

The Sheboygan Police Department wanted to remind those planning to celebrate in the town. Authorities say thousands of people are expected at the lake.

The following reminders have been issued by the authorities:

  • Alcohol
    • Possession and consumption of alcohol is prohibited on all city beaches. Alcohol can be possessed and consumed in the Deland Park area south of the pier (the vendor area) and in the grassy area of ​​King Park. No glass containers are allowed on the beach and in city parks.
  • Fires of joy
    • Recreational fires are permitted along the shores of Lake Michigan between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. Lights cannot exceed 36 inches in diameter and 18 inches in height. Do not bury fires late in the evening. Fires can be extinguished with water or left to burn safely.
  • Boats
    • Boats and craft should stay away from beaches.
  • Pets
    • It’s better and much safer to keep your pets at home while you enjoy the festivities. Pets are prohibited in all city parks and beaches except those designated and posted as on-leash or off-leash. This includes that pets are prohibited in Deland and King parks and their beaches.

Officials want vacations to be safe and enjoyable for anyone heading to the lakeside.
