The sunny and warm days of summer have passed, but in Milwaukee County there are still unequaled opportunities to get outside and enjoy the many things we offer. Visitors can take in the brilliant holiday lights at many county parks, including Pere Marquette Park, Cathedral Square Park and Zeidler Union Square. As the temperature drops, you can lace up your skates and hit the ice rink at Red Arrow Park, help count birds wintering at the Wehr Nature Center, participate in the Santa Shuffle Run/Walk along the lakefront, or attend an art fair at the Mitchell Park Domes. As always, sites such as the Milwaukee Art Museum and Milwaukee Public Museum offer excellent options for an interesting day out. And KEY Milwaukee is an excellent resource for planning your time. Big is often better. Milwaukee is home to one of the largest music festivals, Summerfest. We also have huge annual festivals that celebrate the cultures of various countries or ethnicities. We have a big, impressive zoo, a major league baseball team drawing millions of fans each year, and an expansive lakefront with museums, beaches and parks. We have large and successful businesses calling Milwaukee home. Harley Davidson, Northwestern Mutual, Rockwell Automation, and Johnson Controls all have long histories in Milwaukee. Much of the city's economic development efforts focus on helping private sector companies grow bigger and better. We are building an ecosystem in Milwaukee that encourages smaller businesses to grow into large enterprises. No matter what you choose to do in Milwaukee County, I hope you enjoy your time with us. Yes, in Milwaukee we love big. Sincerely, Sincerely, Chris Abele, Milwaukee County Executive Tom Barrett, Mayor
