*Just in case you didn’t already have plans for the next few days (as if, you popular person, you), here’s your list of 3 things to do in Milwaukee this weekend…and 1 not to do.*
1) Milwaukee Día de los Muertos / Day of the Dead (all ages)
Saturday 10/29: Walker Square Park in Walker’s Point; 10am – 5pm
As we mentioned in last week’s Milwaukee Paranormal Conference recap, the Walker’s Square and Walker’s Point neighborhood associations are celebrating their 7th annual Día de los Muertos / Day of the Dead. It’s family-friendly day filled with dancing, music, a mini parade, a 5k run, and more. Check out how this traditionally Hispanic part of town celebrates the Halloween season. Free.
2) Chili Halloween! (all ages)
Sunday 10/30: North Point Lighthouse; 4:30pm – 7:30pm
The iconic and historic North Point Lighthouse in Lake Park is opening their doors and 74ft tower to all families for snacks and tours. $10 gets you Wicked Chili, Magical Hot Chocolate, Creepy Crawly Candy, and Ghostly Marshmallows. There’s even a costume contest for the kiddos.
3) Halloween on Brady Street (21+)
Saturday 10/29: Brady Street on the Lower East Side; 9:30pm – bar close
For you of-age revelers out there, there’s few better options to see the spooky and sexy Halloween costumes this weekend than at Brady Street bars. The Brady Street BID joined 14 bars together for individual cash-prize costume contests and drink specials. After you’re done handing out candy to the 5000th Batman and Elsa like we are down in Bay View, it’s the place to be.
