Let the Summer Fun Begin

Memorial Day Weekend - the unofficial start to summer. Unofficial because summer doesn't actually start until around June 21, but that doesn't stop everyone from getting into a summer state of mind. Already the Events Calendar for Milwaukee is full. Every weekend there is something going on, starting this weekend with Chocolate Fest in Burlington. Who can really argue with a whole festival dedicated to chocolate? We went to that one once, and my biggest suggestion there is - MORE FREE CHOCOLATE. There was plenty of chocolate there, but I wanted some samples!

Some of the other big festivals in this area include Summerfest - the world's largest music festival, Festa Italiana, Mexican Fiesta, River Splash, Bastille Days, Irish Fest, and Polish Fest. There is literally something for everyone, and you really could attend a big event every single weekend all summer long - Memorial Day through Labor Day. I don't think it would be possible to attend all the Events in Milwaukee and surrounding areas. It would certainly take a lot of planning and dedication!

We're not quite that dedicated. We usually go to Summerfest, the 4th of July fireworks in Waukesha, and the State Fair, and that's about it. How about you? What are you doing for fun this summer?
