If you got some time on your hands and are looking for something to do right now and then later on this summer, here is my two step plan for you:
1) Read my recently published article in Chicago Parent magazine on Milwaukee's Summerfest:http://www.chicagoparent.com/magazines/going-places/2013-summer/fests/summerfest
2) Go to http://www.summerfest.com, check out the concert schedule.
3) Pick a day a go.
If you are a live music fan and you like being out in the sun on the shores of Lake Michigan, then Summerfest is for you. Trust me you won't be disappointed. For a better experience however, leave the kids at home. Yes, my article in Chicago Parent tells you it is indeed kid friendly, but trust me, if you want the full Summerfest experience, find yourself a babysitter and enjoy a beer, a brat and some damn fine live music.
P.S. And if you really have some extra time on your hands, share the above link with...well, everyone you know
