It is there that retired Milwaukee Firefighter Scott Van Roo will exchange vows with the love of his life Carla Miller.

Instead of gifts, they're raising money to send kids to camp which is held the week of August 14th-20th. 

Those who attend wedding with bright red Van Roo Fest wristbands will get discounts on their purchases.

In the coming weeks, Van Roo will be out and about handing them out. On Friday night he'll be at Cathedral Square, handing them out during Bastille Days.

The two with daughter Emma were special live guests on the CBS 58 News at 4.
