The new summer fireworks event planned for downtown Madison this month will include a rooftop DJ party, BBQ, musical acts stage, human cannonball and more, according to an announcement Wednesday morning.
Organizers for Festival Foods Shake the Lake, to take place June 27 on John Nolen Drive, said a variety of entertainment is scheduled for the new event, which is a privately funded show put on by the Madison Mallards and Festival foods.
Shake the Lake will include a "Star Wars"-themed firework show launched over Lake Monona beginning at 10 p.m., according to a release Wednesday.
The city's traditional fireworks festival, Rhythm and Booms, was canceled last year by Madison Festivals Inc. after the event was moved downtown from its longtime home in Warner Park on the city's north side.
Other events announced include the iHeart Media Rooftop Party, which gives attendees who pay $15 a guaranteed spot to see the fireworks.
