Fire on the River, Sauk Prairie« Back to Events
Sauk City (with neighbor Prairie du Sac, together known as “Sauk Prairie”) hosts its annual Fire on the River celebration with the largest fireworks display along the Wisconsin River.
Fire on the River features two full days of family-friendly fun highlighting the best the Sauk Prairie Area has to offer. Activities include Battle of the Bands, Battle of the Restaurants, Eagle Chase, All-You-Can-Eat Pancake Breakfast, games, beer, wine, kids’ art, and of course, the fireworks.
U.S. 12 and Highways 60 and 78 bring you to Sauk City; Highway 188 bypasses to the east across the river, also offering access to not only views of the fireworks but also to the beautiful Wollersheim Winery & Distillery!
