Happy Milwaukee Day, Milwaukee. Or 414 Day. Or 414 Milwaukee Day. Or 414MKEDay. It’s all the same. It’s all about Milwaukee.

In that spirit, please enjoy this year’s Milwaukee video love letter from Imagine MKE, VISIT Milwaukee, and director Samer Ghani. It features Wisconsin poet laureate Dasha Kelly Hamilton reading a new poem, “Fire Light.” It also features some indelible Milwaukee images from the last year: the Bucks championship, the ribbon cutting ceremony at America’s Black Holocaust Museum, words from new mayor Cavalier Johnson, and much more. It’s simply beautiful.

“New light, refreshed life,” is how Dasha Kelly Hamilton puts it. Perfect. Let’s keep that light, that newness, going throughout the year.
