The half hour fireworks show lit up the skies and could be seen for miles. People from all over Wisconsin who were in attendance said they were amazed by what they saw in the sky over the small Village of Pound. Kucan of Milwaukee said, This is the best fireworks show I've ever seen. The president of Anchor Bank from down south, brought about a dozen friends who said, we just came back from Disney and this show was better than that.
But the best comment was from a Green Bay Packer fan that said when I was leaving the park there were so many people, I felt like I was leaving a Packer game. A special thank you to everyone who helped, gave support, and participated in making this picnic a huge success.
