MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Wisconsin's largest annual music festival got underway Wednesday, but the traditional opening night fireworks show is being pushed back due to heavy fog in the forecast.
Milwaukee's Summerfest attracts hundreds of thousands of people in a week and a half through the July 4th weekend.
The Big Bang Fireworks Show that was scheduled for 9:30 p.m. has been re-set for the same time Thursday night.
Fog has been a problem lately on Milwaukee's lakefront, due mainly to colder than normal water temperatures on Lake Michigan as a result of the cold winter.
Last weekend, the fog canceled both days of flight performances at Milwaukee's Air and Water Show.
