On a sunny Saturday in the Village of Twin Lakes, hundreds of people came together for the annual Libertyfest parade, which brought in regional and some national visitors into the village.

With Wayne and Kathleen Messmer serving as the parade grand marshals, elected officials, including Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth, Executive Jim Kreuser along with State Rep. Samantha Kerkman and Sen. Van Wanggaard were on hand to salute the crowd.

Wayne Messmer, meanwhile, is scheduled to sing the National Anthem before Saturday’s Aquanuts Water Ski Show slated for 7:30 p.m. at Lance Park.

Messmer, who has a summer home in the Twin Lakes area, has made hundreds of appearances at Chicago’s Wrigley Field, where he delivered the National Anthem before Cubs games.
