U.S. Bank Fireworks
By far the largest fireworks display in the greater Milwaukee area, the U.S. Bank Fireworks feature hundreds of rockets shot from barges anchored in the breakwater near Veterans Park. Each year the lakefront is packed to the brim with spectators, some of whom stake out choice spots more than 24 hours in advance. The riotous display lights up the sky as soon as dusk falls, and continues for roughly half an hour, colorful rockets competing for attention as the booms and crackles bounce off of Downtown buildings and turn the lakefront into a scene of shifting light and rolling sound.
