From 11am-3pm this Saturday, Sept. 12th the Friends of Bradford Beach will host the final of four Family Day events at Bradford Beach, 2400 N. Lincoln Memorial Drive. So this is your last chance if you've missed the three previous ones. The whole point of these Family Days is to bring families back to beach through family-friendly programming. Take a close look at what they offer - sand castle building contests, a treasure hunt for prizes, kiddy volleyball courts, kiddie bike repair, a performance by Accompany of Kids, environmental activities by REI, back to school items donated by UPS, and how about this to top it off - a chance to win an autographed NASCAR replica of David Ragan's Ford Car #6. My only question is... Why didn't they have stuff like this when I was a kid?
The Mitchell Park Domes will host one of Milwaukee's best known jazz talents, "Eddie Butts," on Oct. 1st from 6:30pm - 8:30pm to open its season concerts series, Music Under Glass, every Tuesday and Thursday evening at the same time until December. For the general admission price, visitors will be entertained by live music, a state-of-the-art computer generated light show with every color of the rainbow to choose from, and.........have the option to break away and esape into either the tropical or arid dome. If you need a bite to eat or some liquid of your choice, that too is available. My best advice would be for all interested parties to get there early and let the music take control.
