From carnival rides to food stands to live music, more than 10,000 people enjoyed the marathon park Fourth of July celebration.

The five day event has been put on by the Wausau area Jaycees for 59 years. They won't be sure how much money they raised for a few days, but organizer de Seliskar says they're happy with how the event went.

"We funnel that money back into the community for our community donations budget - our projects that we run all year for kids all the way up to senior citizens."

And what Fourth of July celebration would be complete without fireworks? The rain let up Sunday night just in time for the show.
