MILWAUKEE - Tuesday night's July 3rd U.S. Bank Fireworks over Milwaukee's lakefront will be a visual stunner with more than 12,000 shells exploding over thousands of viewers.
Marc Thannert of J&M Displays says this is one of the largest and longest they produce.
It will be divided into three sections, and each are like their own mini show.
"It will start out real big, with a huge opening, just to get everybody's attention."
Thannert told Newsradio 620 WTMJ's Jodi Becker that the middle section will feature a lot of unique shells put together in separate scenes, and then, the big finish.
"The show will keep building to the huge grand finale at the end," explained Thannert.
"It will start with a whole lot of noise, of course, because everyone likes the booms of fireworks. Then, they'll build in size. We'll start with three-inch shells, then four-inch shells, then eight-inch shells."
He says the pacing picks up at the end.
People will want to notice colors, which will include everything from pastels to uniquely vibrant colors.
