July 4th Fireworks CANCELLED, Illegal FW will be busted

This from local authorities in a number of press releases...

Because of the extreme dry conditions in the Wisconsin Dells area, fireworks shows for the 4th of July have been cancelled. This includes Kalahari, Great Wolf, Wilderness and Mt. Olympus and Wis Dells, Baraboo and Portage municipal fireworks. Some may be rescheduled for later in the summer.

Also, cops say you will pay a hefty fine if you shoot illegal fireworks... Simply put -- if it blows up or goes up, it's illegal in Wisconsin without a permit. If you buy at one of those roadside stands, be aware those bottle rockets could end up costing you thousands in fines.

Just to pile on, enforcement may have been lax in previous years, but I assume the authorities are going to take it much more seriously this year because of the dry conditions.
