Fireworks Display at the Conclusion of the Fitchburg Festival of Speed

On July 8th, Fitchburg Center becomes the host of the Fitchburg Festival of Speed. What is the Fitchburg Festival of Speed you might ask?  It is a fast-paced criterium with some of the fastest local bicyclist hoping to be the Wisconsin Cycling Association State Criterium Champ.  Still confused?  It is a bike race around the loop from East Cheryl to Woods Hollow to Research Park Drive back to East Cheryl.  So, if you ever wondered, come down and see for yourself.  It is a fun-filled day with activities from biking, running, live music, food, beer and fireworks at the conclusion of the event (approximately 9:15 p.m.).  It is free, so bring the family and let us entertain you!
