Heritage Days Parade: A Tradition Since the 1940s

The Heritage Days Parade has been a part of South Milwaukee’s culture and traditions since the 1940’s, uniting the community in joyous celebration. This year, we anticipate an attendance of over 6,000 spectators, eager to experience the magic of this beloved event.

We would like to emphasize that the local parade is made possible solely through donations, as it is not subsidized with taxpayer dollars. We extend our sincere appreciation to the generous donors and the hard-working volunteers who have dedicated their time and effort to promote, fundraise, and coordinate this grand parade.
