What a weekend! Check out the full schedule for a complete listing of Rocketober events, and I’ve posted the flyer advertising the South Milwaukee Human Concerns Haunted House, which opens this weekend.
Learn more about all these events on the Rocketober Facebook page.
A note on the haunted house … Anyone who brings two packages of toilet paper or paper towel products this weekend they will receive a free hot dog!
And here is more information on the Birds & Beers event from organizer Rita Wiskowski, the driving force behind our recent Bird City designation …
Join us at 3 pm on Saturday, Oct. 21, as Bryan Lenz, Director of Bird City, Mayor Erik Brooks, other city officials, birders, Park Friends representatives, and community people come to Grant Park Picnic Area 5 for a brief presentation of SM’s newly designated Bird City Status. After the presentation we’ll do a little birding, so bring your binoculars and wear comfortable shoes. Following the bird walk, at about 4:30, we’ll be headed to Moran’s Pub (912 Milwaukee Ave, South Milwaukee). Moran’s has a great selection of beers and offers a menu of sandwiches and soups. This portion of the celebration is known as a “Birds & Beers,” a gathering of birders where we discuss all things birds, over food and libations. Come and meet the birders who know that Grant Park is a great place to bird.
