Milwaukee goes green for Irish Fest

Milwaukee is about to get greener.

In preparation for the world's largest Irish music and cultural festival, several Milwaukee landmarks will turn their lights green this week.

Irish Fest runs from Thursday, Aug. 14 through Sunday, Aug. 17.

The Mitchell Park Domes will turn its halos green, the four corners of the U.S. Bank Center will be lit green, the Marquette Interchange will glow green, the Irish Fest Center will spotlight its Wauwatosa headquarters in green, the Wisconsin Center will turn its tunnel green and the Bronze Fonz will soon don Irish attire.

Social media users are invited to post and tag their own photos of Milwaukee turning green on Facebook and on Twitter following the handle @MKEIrishFest.

"Each August Milwaukee becomes the epicenter of Irish music and culture during the festival," said Patrick Boyle, executive director of Milwaukee Irish Fest.
