Fly a Kite
The Gift of Wings shop at Veterans Park opens for the season this month selling kites and some delicious ice cream. Don’t let a little chill hold you back!
Mama Tried Motorcycle Show
THE RAVE/EAGLES CLUB | MARCH 4-6
This massive showcase is back, rolling into The Rave/Eagles Club March 4-6, literally. The indoor invitational – naturally presented by Milwaukee’s own Harley- Davidson – brings riders and fans together to marvel at over 100 bikes from builders of all styles.
The official bar crawl storms Water Street on March 5, but you can build your own shuffle, too. Trade in green beer for quality pours at local breweries (we favor Third Space Brewing’s Mystic Knot Irish coffee stout) or get an obligatory Guinness at one of Milwaukee’s many Irish pubs. Sound like a lot of calories? Consider the Jig Jog 4K run/walk along Milwaukee’s lakefront the morning of the Shuffle.
