MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee lakefront fireworks show will continue in 2020 thanks to the financial support of backers including those who helped fund this year’s celebration.

American Family Insurance, the Milwaukee Brewers, T&M Partners and Brewers star Christian Yelich all agreed to a one-year extension of their financial support for the popular July 3 celebration.

“We know the lakefront fireworks is a popular community tradition for many Milwaukee residents — we’re honored to support this event to show our commitment to Milwaukee, and we encourage others to join us,” said Judd Schemmel, associate vice president of partnerships and community investment for American Family Insurance.

The Brewers and Yelich, the reigning NL MVP, are also proud to pitch in again.

“Brewers fans are once again demonstrating their support of the team in packing Miller Park, and we’re excited to be able to give back through this longtime community tradition,” said Cecelia Gore, Brewers Community Foundation executive director. “We look forward to lighting up the lakefront with our great partners on July 3.”

The 2019 event is called Lakefront Fireworks and will be presented by American Family Insurance, T&M Partners, the Brewers, Yelich and Milwaukee County Parks.
