I heard Fireworks on Weds night 8/11 that seemed to come from the Greenway Station area or some office park near there on the Far West side near Middleton. Anyone know what was the occasion?

Every time they have a new store opening or some special event at Greenway Station they'll have fireworks. The owners should get a CLUE! Those of us who live nearby would gladly attend your event. IF YOU'D ONLY LET US KNOW. Half of our complex was running to the sidewalk wondering what was going on and admiring the fireworks. I get the Sunday and Wed Wis State Journal, read the paper Isthmus, the online isthmus, read the local channels online, and somehow missed it! Bad advertising if so many missed your notice.

The fireworks were at 1200 john q Hammons dr. The gialamas company held it's annual Concert in the Park. It is a free family event featuring the Wisconsin youth symphony orchestra, a science show for kids, and for the second year, the keep wisconsin warm fund ice cream social. 5 bucks adults and 3 for kids gets you all you can eat ice cream. All proceeds go to the keep wi warm fund. Also, the event was listed in isthmus, on signage around the business park and on a giant banner surrounding the top of gialamas hq. Come on out next year, it's a great event!

Thanks for the scoop. So instead of having the WCO they now have the Wisconsin youth symphony orchestra. I didn't see the Isthmus ad and haven't driven in there lately so didn't see the signs.
