It’s weekends like this that make South Milwaukee special.
Here are three big events happening Friday through Sunday in our fair city …
- Friday: South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center 10th Anniversary Gala. A terrific evening of entertainment, celebrating a decade of this community treasure. Dozens of performers means there is something for everyone. The event starts at 6 p.m. with a pre-show social featuring some of the acts in the lobby, refreshments and hors d’ oeuvres. Get a full list of performers and learn more here.
- Saturday: South Milwaukee Little League Opening Day. This day is another thing pretty unique to South Milwaukee. It starts with a parade down Milwaukee and 9th Avenues, starting at Papa Luigi’s and ending at Little League Park, where there will be ceremonies before the opening slate of games. Parade at noon, opening ceremonies at 1, games start at 1:45. See a schedule here. Also on Saturday is this St. Luke’s UCC Spaghetti Dinner from 4 to 7 p.m. at 2200 18th Ave. They are featuring chef-prepared spaghetti sauce and entertainment. Adults $7, children 11 and under $4.

Live music by Water Street Bridge is also planned. Noon to 4 p.m. on 11th Avenue, south of Milwaukee Avenue. Thanks to the Milwaukee Food Truck Alliance and the award-winning Streetza Pizza – owned by South Milwaukeean Scott Baitinger – for bringing this event to our city, and for Educators Credit Union for stepping up as a sponsor just today.
