Milwaukee gears up for Game 4 of NBA Finals

NOW: Milwaukee gears up for Game 4 of NBA Finals

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Deer District continues to gain national attention as people around the globe watch more than 20,000 fans cheer on the Bucks. The team says they set an attendance record during Game 3.

Minority owner Valarie Daniels-Carter remembers breaking ground on what would become Fiserv Forum.

"Everybody was basically there focused on one thing. Let's try to bring home the championship. And that's what you're seeing and experiencing now."

Somewhere between 20,000-25,000 fans experience the finals games from the Deer District.

The Bucks have continued adding to the Deer District throughout the playoffs, and they aren't stopping for Game 4.

"As we continue to add things, we're adding some more food, we're adding some more beverage," Bucks Vice President of Hospitality Justin Green said. "We want to make sure everybody that wants to come out here and enjoy themselves, eat, drink, they can do that."

Fans have been lucky with weather to this point, but with storms on the horizon, the city and team are looking out.

"The Department of Public Works will get involved in this to see what we need to do weather-wise tomorrow," Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said.

The Bucks say if it rains, anyone who wants to come out and watch the Finals in the Deer District is more than welcome to tough it out.

If there is lightning Wednesday, they might have to evacuate the area.
