We hope you make it out on Labor Day for the 3rd annual All-City People's Parade. The home base for the parade's creations has been the Grand Avenue mall which became a lively warren of organized chaos as dozens of individual pieces took shape over the past few months. More info below.

Mark your calendars for Das Oktoberfest on September 24! Presented by ART Milwaukee, NEWaukee and Westtown Association, it's a day-long block party with live music, beer gardens and plenty of activities for families.
