Labor Day weekend is a time of creative celebration in Milwaukee's Third Ward. This former warehouse district has become a vibrant area filled with shops, restaurants and the arts. I haven't really taken the time to explore this area, so when I heard about the Third Ward Art Festival I definitely wanted to check it out.
The event did not disappoint. The area was filled with booth after booth of fabulous artists displaying their work. I was truly amazed at the quality and breadth of the artwork on display. The sound of acoustic musicians drifted through the air as people browsed and explored. Both kids and adults got a chance to express their own creativity with painting and coloring stations. And when hunger hit, there was plenty to choose from at the food trucks, surrounding restaurants and the Milwaukee Public Market.
I will definitely be back again next year!
Hands down, my favorite two months of the year are September and October. I call this time "Septober". From the warm days and cool nights to the beautiful fall leaves, I love everything about this time. This year, I've made a promise to myself to savor every one of the 61 days of Septober.
