      Shelley, we are so glad to hear that you enjoy our celebration! This year is going to be extra special with the largest legal firework in Wisconsin as part of the display. There are only a few of these sold in the state so we are pumped to have one. Be sure to stop downtown to check out the music and the rest of the festivities! ~ Celeste
