Wisconsin's biggest fireworks display begins at 10. If you'll be watching them from a boat, there's a slow/no-wake order from 6 until midnight that the Dane County Sheriff's Office says it'll be strictly enforcing.

There are some showers predicted for the Saturday forecast. All entertainment and vendors will go on rain or shine. If for any reason the fireworks can't be launched, they'll be rescheduled to Sunday night.

After a fight broke out at the end of last year's Shake the Lake, and after Brat Fest this year, officials are confident in their security plan.
