MILWAUKEE-- After two days of cancellations the fireworks show on the lakeshore went as planned.

There was a close scare with rain that sent residents running for cover but the storm quickly passed. The owner of the explosive company that put off the fireworks said this year the show was bigger and brighter because they used Japanese fireworks. That type of firework creates a brighter explosion and often a bigger one as well.

The company started putting up their fireworks at 9:30 in the morning in time for the show at 9:30 at night. It lasted 25 minutes, as thousands of fireworks were set off.
