Thiensville celebrated the start of construction for its new stage in Village Park May 1 with a groundbreaking ceremony. The permanent stage, part of the Village Park Reimagined! campaign, will be called the Port Washington State Bank River Stage, thanks to the $65,000 contribution from the bank, which has a branch location in Thiensville.

Despite a wet spring, park committee members and village officials expect the stage will be ready in time for Family Fun Before the Fourth, set for June 29. Once in place, the stage will provide a venue for numerous events, including concerts, summer festivals and Screen on the Green. There are still sponsorship opportunities to support the stage and other planned improvements in Village Park. Call Thiensville Village Hall at 262-242-3720 for details.
