Algoma's Shanty Days "Celebration of the Lake" festival won't be having fireworks this year, instead, drones will take to the skies and put on a show.

A company out of Michigan will be putting on the show with music provided by a local radio station.  This will be only the third drone light show in Wisconsin, the other two shows were held last month at EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh.

25 drones will be used in the show which should last 10 to 15 minutes.  The drones will be launched at Crescent Beach in Algoma shortly after 8:30 p.m. on Sunday, August 12.
