Last Weekend in Milwaukee…
In this edition of our summer weekend photo gallery series: images from National Lighthouse Day, Morning Glory Fine Craft Fair, and Tigernite at Yield Bar, captured by the TCD Photo Team.
Milwaukee is a diverse city with numerous events happening every weekend. The Third Coast Daily photo team visited a few of them last weekend and has a photo gallery including National Lighthouse Day, Wisconsin State Fair, Morning Glory Fine Craft Fair, and Tigernite at Yield Bar. Just a small sampling of what our fair city has to offer.
All photos taken by Angela Morgan, Sara Bill, and Madeline Pieschel.
Wednesday | National Lighthouse Day
Friday | Wisconsin State Fair
Animals, rides, games, music, artwork, shopping and 11 days of food, food, food is the summer celebration called the Wisconsin State Fair. Over 100 items on a stick could be found around the fairgrounds including new concoctions like Deep Fried Peanut Butter & Bacon Nuggets with Berry Weiss Jelly from Saz’s and Reuben Bites On-a-Pretzel-Stick from Slim McGinn’s Irish Pub. New this year was “The Sporkies,” the fair’s first annual food competition and anyone attending could purchase samples from the finalists competing for “Best Tasting” and Most Creative” of the fair. The festival site was packed everyday with people celebrating the best of Wisconsin.
Saturday | Tigernite at Yield Bar
Milwaukee band Tigernite rocked Yield Bar on Saturday night. Tigernite is a glam party-rock band that was formed when four friends from other bands came together to write dance music. Molly Roberts led the band with her powerful vocals, backed up by Maxwell Emmett on guitar, Eric Arsnow on bass, and Alex Becker on drums. Tigernite’s next show is on September 6 at Riverwest Public House.
Sunday | Morning Glory Fine Craft Fair
Over 140 artists participated in the 39th annual Morning Glory Fine Craft Fair held this past Saturday and Sunday at the the grounds of the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts. Fine crafts such as handmade ceramics and pottery, glassware, jewelry, photography, wood, metal pieces, and mixed media mediums were exhibited by the many artists, who came to Milwaukee from all over. The once small and intimate art fair that was originally held at the Charles Allis Museum has grown greatly in size and popularity in recent years, helping it to become a nationally recognized art event looked forward to by many every summer.
