About 1000 residents attended Edgerton’s July 3 picnic.
“Staff estimates approximately 1,000 total,” said Beth Linn, city administrator. About 750 persons were at the park and another 250 at the lake.
The city served about 400 hamburgers and 320 hot dogs.
“The community picnic is provided by the City of Edgerton as part of the celebration,” Linn said.” The community picnic and fireworks show continues to be a great event for the Edgerton community; neighbors and friends to come together to celebrate our nation’s birthday. While we were initially concerned the weather might hamper the event, the rain held out and we were able to host a great event including the community picnic, fireworks show, Kids Zone, etc.”
Linn said it is unknown at this time how much sales tax will be received from fireworks sales; sales tax will be received from the state in August or September.

“The city of Edgerton has not historically tracked sales tax received from fireworks,” she said.
