Heritage Days is off to a great start, including a Firehouse Spaghetti Dinner on Wednesday that soared past last year’s attendance figures and a stepped-up Evening on the Avenue celebration last night.

And we’re just getting started! Here is what’s on tap this weekend …

  • Friday: South Milwaukee Lionsfest begins, with the car cruise and car show, fish dinner, and music by the Cheap Shots and Mount Olive.
  • Saturday: It’s Heritage Days Parade day, starting at 11 a.m. Then it’s the Friends of Mill Pond Duck Race at 2 p.m., and more Lionsfest (rib dinner, music by Pat McCurdy, Jamit and 76th Juliet).
  • Sunday: Be on the lookout for the #MKELion as Lionsfest continues with Family Day activities, chicken and music by The Do-Wa-Wa. Also check out Ability Fest at Wil-o-Way Grant Park, as we celebrate 25 years of the Americans with Disabilities Act. More details here and here.

Reminder: Heritage Days Parade Saturday … And A Location Change For The Duck Race

Heritage Week continues with our annual parade today (Saturday).

The parade starts at 11 a.m. It begins at 12th and Milwaukee Avenues, heads west to 16th Avenue, turns north and ends at Lionsfest, which continues through Sunday (Family Day).

Also, be sure to check out the Friends of Oak Creek Watercourse and Mill Pond annual Duck Race starting at 2 p.m. at 15th and Milwaukee Avenues — not the Mill Pond. Please note the change from previous years.

See a full list of Heritage Days events here, and I’ll see you on the parade route!
