The popular fireworks show on Lake Minnetonka is being moved up to Wednesday, July 3, due to possible storms in the forecast on the Fourth of July. 

The Excelsior-Lake Minnetonka Chamber of Commerce told FOX 9, "After careful consideration" and discussions with local officials and the National Weather Service, they will light off the fireworks at dusk, around 9:50 p.m., on July 3. 

The event was scheduled for July 4, but thunderstorms are possible prompting the decision to move the show up.
