Local organizations work to make sure this year's Rhythm and Booms bash will be safe for everyone.

The weather forecast is looking good for Saturday and city staffers are anticipating nearly 300,000 people to come and enjoy Wisconsin's largest one-day event at Warner Park.
With large amount of pedestrian traffic, people need to remain patient, especially after the event. Along with patience, those attending need to remain safe and take precautions during the fireworks show.

Madison Police Department's North District Captain Richard Bach says, "We are encouraging people to walk to the park if you can or if you are going to drive, park a number of blocks away."

If Warner Park is not in walking distance, there is another alternative to driving. Starting at noon, Madison Metro will be providing a bus service shuttle to the park and back from the M.A.T.C. parking lot on Anderson Street for a $3 charge.

One final tip, while enjoying the festivities Carl Saxe, Assistant Fire Chief, says "If you sit close to the firing line, prescription glasses or safety goggles are really important because with the large amount of fireworks we will be shooting off, you are going to get debris in your eyes."
