The Fourth of July festivities in downtown Green Bay provide the perfect opportunity to showcase all that is new.
Downtown Green Bay businesses are pulling out all the stops with about 100,000 people expected at the city’s Fourth of July festivities.
“Just because of how many people are going to be down here, you really have to be on your A-game to showcase what you have,” said Beau Gille, the owner of Adam’s Street Pub & Grill.
Adam’s Street Pub is hoping a pig roast and live music will help lure people in. The restaurant and bar opened just four months ago. Gille hopes the fourth will help introduce people to his new downtown establishment.
“We’re crossing our fingers,” said Gille. “It should be the big hooray, the Super Bowl, I guess so to speak.”
Green Bay city leaders are hoping the same thing for its revamped downtown.
“I think if you haven’t been here in a year, it’s significantly improved,” said Jim Schmitt, Green Bay’s mayor.
