With restaurants and bars opening their patios, Lake Michigan glimmering in the sun and live music playing from downtown streets or county parks, Milwaukee County welcomes you to enjoy your time with us. I especially welcome the 133rd Northwestern Mutual Annual Meeting of its financial representatives. Summerfest remains the world's largest music festival with over 800 performances and a lineup that includes performers for any music-lover. Popular ethnic festivals abound. And if you're here for the 4th of July, every city celebrates with parades, festivities and fireworks, including one of the best fireworks shows in the country on Milwaukee's lakefront. Milwaukee County's beautiful beaches provide a day in the sun or an evening of music. The Milwaukee River offers boat rides and the beautiful RiverWalk leads to restaurants, theaters and great city views No matter what you choose to do in Milwaukee County, I hope you enjoy your time with us. Sincerely, Chris Abele, Milwaukee County Executive The summer sun shines brightly on Milwaukee, and, in this city, we get out and celebrate when the weather is warm. From our lakefront festivals to neighborhood gatherings, the people of Milwaukee have plenty of options to enjoy the season. And visitors are always welcomed! Milwaukee's history is filled with stories of people joining in social events. Various groups of Native people gathered in Milwaukee long before Europeans set foot here. Successive waves of immigrants brought their own celebrations, and nowadays, Milwaukee's ethnic festivals continue the tradition. The city's natural assets provide some of the best locations for summer celebrations. Our Lake Michigan shoreline, our rivers and our renowned park system are all venues for community events. Our investments in festival grounds, RiverWalks, and park amenities add even more life to warm weather events. When you're in Milwaukee, be sure to join the locals at one of our great summer celebrations! Sincerely, Tom Barrett, Mayor Milwaukee Yards A FLORAL SHOW AT MILWAUKEE'S LIVING LANDMARK, THE DOMES F rom pink flamingos, to gazing balls, to an elegant gazebo, yard art is interspersed among the plants and flowers of summer. Visit "The Domes" to see the show today! 524 S. Layton Blvd. Milwaukee, WI (414) 257-5611
