Partners extend support of Milwaukee's lakefront fireworks in 2020

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee lakefront fireworks show will continue in 2020 thanks to the financial support of multiple backers.

American Family Insurance, the Milwaukee Brewers, T&M Partners, and Brewers star Christian Yelich have all agreed to a one-year extension of their financial support for the popular July 3 celebration. 

The Milwaukee Brewers and MVP Christian Yelich are proud to again pitch in for the 2020 event as a way to thank the community.

"Brewers fans are once again demonstrating their support of the team in packing Miller Park," Brewers Community Foundation Executive Director Cecelia Gore said. "We're excited to be able to give back through this longtime community tradition."

The groups stepped up to fill the funding gap when longtime sponsor U.S. Bank announced earlier this year that it was backing out of the celebration,

This year's event is called Lakefront Fireworks presented by American Family Insurance, T&M Partners, Milwaukee Brewers, Christian Yelich, and Milwaukee County Parks.

The event is expected to draw hundreds of thousands to the lakefront Wednesday night.
