Cacophonous. That’s the best way to describe the all-day event at Cathedral Square Park this past Saturday. Patrons got an opportunity to shop farmers’ stands and vendors, check out local artists along with top-notch musical acts, there was a tasting tent featuring coffee and beer, folks got to plan their upcoming movie choices for the Milwaukee Film Festival, and more importantly (for us, at least) meet up with local media outlets and online venues.

Made in Milwaukee was deliciously cool (thanks to the introduction of fall weather) and sunny, highly populated by Milwaukeeans from all over, and many a dart was thrown and landed on the balloon-filled board at the ThirdCoast Digest tent.

Folks who wandered further down the line to the WMSE and Mondo Lucha table (look for us at that event this coming Saturday) got a bonus from us, where we positioned a photobooth of sorts. Participants who were “Made in Milwaukee” (although we also accepted folks who have lived in the county or city for more than a decade) chose a surname based on their street and neighborhood’s known name. Then they chose a frame and we photographed them for our slide show.

You can peruse the gallery below, or follow this link to a full-screen slideshow. Our flickr gallery also has the permissions lowered for the next two weeks so that if you want to save a photograph of yourself or loved one, it can be done for personal use. We did our best to keep the surnames straight, but if we’ve erred let us know and we’ll get you ‘representing’ your neighborhood.

Here we go!
