Celebrating its 68th year in 2017, the South Shore Frolics is one of the oldest festivals in Milwaukee. Originally known as the South Shore Water Frolic, it is currently sponsored by the Bay View Lions Club. Proceeds go to providing support and services to the needy in the community and the WisconsinLions Camp. At the park you will find kids games, fish fry, bands, an Art Show & Classic Car Show.
Rounding off each night is the festival's signature Atomic Fireworks display put on by Bartolotta / Wolverine Fireworks; and with the crowds' cries of "Blow up the beach!" the evening culminates in a percussive onslaught of shells.
