Free Summer Night Movie in Veteran's Park

Everyone in this city gets a chance to be a Star on my stage..A defining moment in all of our lives. On Saturday night, June 24th, at dusk, in Veterans Park at Gift of Wings. Guardian Credit Union, Milwaukee County Parks and Gift of Wings present the Milwaukee Outdoor premier of the Movie SING! In addition, we will be promoting our singing competition before the movie, so come early and tune up your voice. Critics proclaim: Sing delivers colorfully animated, cheerfully undemanding entertainment with a solid voice cast and a warm-hearted story line that lives up to its title. Oh, and the POPCORN is only $1.00 :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9qPgK_u4vX8

Fireworks Kite Festival

Fireworks Kite Festival July 3, 2017..BOOM BOOM.. KSWI in Conjuction with Gift of Wings, US Bank and Your Milwaukee County Parks..CountyParks.com, will sponsor our annual Fireworks Kite Festival. Featuring the Giant Kites of Yves LaForest. This is a fun fly and all are welcome to participate. Our goal is to fill the sky with as many kites as possible. Times from 11:00 am until 6:30 PM, then 7:30 PM until the fireworks start at 9:25 pm. We have set aside a huge area of Veterans Park just for kitefliers. So fly a kite and get the best seats in the house for the greatest firworks show on Earth. Well...in my opinion, of course. Now understand that traffic and parking are a real mess for this event, so come early and don't plan on leaving until after the fireworks are finished at 10:15pm. In other words, plan your whole day in the park. It's a blast.
