The Week Ahead, Downtown

There is plenty to do downtown this week. A glimpse …

  • Wednesday, July 13: Guardian Credit Union Movie in the Grass, “Jurassic World.” Show starts at dusk. Learn more here.
  • Thursday, July 14: Tweed Funk, a Memphis blues revue, plays at the South Milwaukee Downtown Market, as part of the South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center’s Music at the Market series, presented by Classic Cargo International. The show starts at 5. The market runs from 3 to 7, with free face painting presented by Trinity Lutheran Church at the Country Meadows booth.
  • Saturday, July 16: History Walking Tour. Join my dad, Pharis Brooks, as he shares the “proud past” of key downtown landmarks, including the railroad depot and post office. And grab a free cup of coffee MKE City Sippers. The tour, the second of three this summer, starts at 9 a.m. at the South Milwaukee Library.
  • Bonus: My dad is also leading a free, one-hour lecture on July 23 at the South Milwaukee Historical Society, 717 Milwaukee Ave., about the 1929 fiery end of South Milwaukee High School, and the role of  1935 student Adelaide Cyris, and others. The talk starts at 10 a.m., and bring a lawn chair.

So, lots to do in our city center. And it’s not even Heritage Days yet!
