MILWAUKEE - Thousands of people will pack Milwaukee's lakefront Wednesday to see Milwaukee's third of July US Bank fireworks show. But one of them may look a little out of place.

Jeremy Shamrowicz and his co-workers have quite the set up. It includes a huge snow globe with a Christmas tree inside.

The group is also doing Christmas in July, complete with gift exchange. They have dozens of Santa figurines that will light up, and the big guy himself may take a break from his summer break to and visit.

"We'll see," Shamrowicz said. "He could make a surprise visit."

In addition to Santa, they have a big party planned.

"We'll play some ping pong, we've got some foosball set up," he added. "Then we'll sit down, and cook up some epic food."

Epic food includes 80 filets, 40 burgers, 40 brats, 40 chicken breasts, and about a thousand cans of beer.
