Last Weekend in Milwaukee…
In this edition of our summer weekend photo gallery series: images from Polish Fest, UWM Summerdances and Father's Day at the Zoo, captured by Angela Morgan.
Milwaukee is a diverse city with numerous events happening every weekend. The Third Coast Daily photo team visited several of them last weekend and has a photo gallery including Polish Fest, UWM Summerdances, the final brunch served at Crisp Pizza Bar and Father’s Day is celebrated at the Zoo. Just a small sampling of what our fair city has to offer.

Friday | Polish Fest
Saturday | UWM Summerdances
To complete their Year of the Arts and 50th Anniversary Year, UWM collaborated with award-winning director/choreographer Stephan Koplowitz holding several performances throughout the weekend of “Water Sight, Milwaukee.” Temporary performance spaces were created from the Old North Avenue Water Tower and the Cudahy Gardens in front of the Milwaukee Art Museum, sites chosen because of their connection to water for this World Premiere. Third Coast Daily had the opportunity to speak with Stephan Koplowitz before Summerdances weekend and was there for Saturday’s performance. Happy 50 years, UWM Peck School of the Arts!
Sunday | Crisp Pizza Bar closes, Father’s Day celebrated at the Zoo
After several years in business on Brady Street, Crisp Pizza Bar and Lounge served its last brunch Sunday afternoon. A new restaurant will be opening in its place in the near future. Good food and street views. It will be missed.
Dads were treated with several complimentary offers around the city on Sunday to celebrate their special day. The Milwaukee County Zoo gave free admission to Dad to spend a day enjoying the Zoo with his family. The park gave a free button making-workshop so kids could make a “#1 Dad” lasting memento of their trip. The Zoo was packed with families exploring animals, riding the new zip-line, railroad adventures, and of course ice cream on one of the warmest days so far this summer. This year’s special exhibit, the Sting Ray and Shark Bay, is open now through September 2. Keep an eye out for more info out soon on Zoo a la Carte coming in August, a showcase of the best of Milwaukee restaurants right at the Zoo.
