The grand festival Shake the Lake marks the beginning of the summer season in Madison. Locals eagerly await this festival and always remain in search of a perfect place to watch fireworks.
If you ask the locals, they will tell you that they attend the festival every year and will probably advise you on choosing the spot with the best view.
Thus, we learned that places on the terrace are considered the best not only for watching fireworks but also to spend time with loved ones and enjoy a conversation.
On top of that, you can be completely confident in your safety as the police of Madison will stay on alert for your peace!
Madison Police Captain, Tom Snyder, considers this year’s festival one of the best. Over the years, Tom has been providing security with his special events team! This festival will be the last in his career, but this is exactly how he wanted to go out.
Since the very morning, John Nolen Drive began preparations for the festival. The street was blocked so that trucks with food could line up on the road, waiting for guests.
The truck drivers claim that this year, there will be enough meat for everyone since they have prepared at least a thousand pounds.
As a result of last year’s excitement, when the food got sold out at a fantastic speed, the festival organizers decided to be well-prepared this year. According to rough estimates, this time around, they expect about 1,500 people.
We must inform you that John Nolen Drive will be closed between Broome to Blair streets until 6 a.m. on Sunday.
The audience is delighted with the variety of entertainment at the festival. Here, you will be able to find everything you would need to have a good time — from different performers and acrobats to the zoo.
Preparing for the fireworks show was quite a painstaking job for workers due to precipitation at the beginning of the week. However, the fireworks barge took off by 3 p.m. on Saturday. Everything was perfectly prepared to strike a spark out of the inhabitants of Madison to the highest of standards!
