Memorial Day is a time to pause, give thanks to all those who have served our country, and maybe watch a parade or something. It’s also a time to celebrate the unofficial beginning of summer. Summer! Is there anything better than summer in Milwaukee? A big honking list of Milwaukee summer festivals says “NO.”
