Saturday, as Summerfest was in full swing and Milwaukee was easing into a long holiday weekend, hundreds of people gathered on Potter and Logan avenues in Bay View for the 12th annual Burnhearts/Pabst Street Party. The celebration of music, food, crafts, brandy, and a beloved cheap beer had it all.
There was music supplied by Immortal Girlfriend, Shle Berry, Fuzzysurf, L’Resorts, Marielle Allschwang & The Visitations, and SistaStrings. There were dogs, kids, and cutoff shorts galore. There were food vendors and a vibrant marketplace. There were brandy slushes and whisky-spiked coffee drinks. Oh, and you know there was a shit ton of Pabst on tap. There were fun times and sunshine. Though the humidity likely kept some at bay, a sizable group of bold block partiers, businesses, and musicians all braved the heat and came out to celebrate.
In the midst of all the action, we were able to snap a few photos that we feel capture the spirit of the 12th annual Burnhearts/Pabst Street Party. Enjoy! [All photos by Kristy Tayler unless otherwise noted.]
